Like a shepherd, he feeds his flock and gathers
the lambs in his arms, holding them carefully
close to his heart, leading them home.
Say to the cities of Judah, prepare the way of the
Lord. Go to the mountain top, lift your voice:
Jerusalem, here is your God.
I myself will shepherd them, for others have led
them astray. The lost I will rescue and heal their
wounds and pasture them, giving them rest.
Come unto me if you are heavily burdened,
and take my yoke upon your shoulders.
I will give you rest.
