Loving Shepherd of Creation
HYMN 37
From HYMNS FOR CREATURES GREAT & SMALL

  1. Loving Shepherd of Creation,
    Hear us, as we cry to Thee
    In defence of all Your creatures,
    Lift the veil, that we might see
    How our silence feeds their suffering;
    Hunted, tortured and destroyed.
    Give us courage, make us fearless,
    Speak through us, Your healing word.
     
  2. Lamb of God, Your wounded nation,
    Pains of birth; groans in travail.
    Long awaits her liberation,
    Halt, the silent scars revealed.
    Lift to Heaven our supplications,
    Borne on candleís flickering flame.
    Deeds of wickedness exposing,
    Witness to Godís saving name.
     
  3. Jesus, Lord of all Creation,
    Send Your Spirit from above.
    Let the Dove of Peace embrace us
    Gently, as Your Spirit moves,
    Bringing healing to this nation,
    Turning darkness into light.
    Let the flame of love grow brighter,
    All Your creatures, Lord unite.

Written by Linda J. Bodicoat
Could be sung to ĎAbbotís Leighí (8.7.8.7.D).
