Jesus Our Shepherd
"King?"
B.D. Prewer

“King” is your word, not mine;
Friend I am, and not very choosey:
pagans and prostitutes
publicans and sinners,
Grace is my kingdom.

“King” is your word, not mine;
Servant I am, no one beneath me,
feet washer and waiter,
serving the least,
Love is my kingdom.

“King” is your word, not mine;
Physician I am, all free of charge,
touching the leper,
expelling the demons
Health is my kingdom.

“King” is your word, not mine;
a Seer I am, seeing God’s word
in mustard seed and yeast,
wildflower and ravens,
Truth is my kingdom.

“King” is your word, not mine;
Tradesman I am, honing my craft,
familiar with wood,
hammer and nails,
Hope is my kingdom.
