The Biblical metaphor of Christ as “the good shepherd”, and the miracle of the loaves and fishes are joined to emphasize God’s loving care in any circumstance.

Lyrics

The Good Shepherd
Poem The Good Shepherd by Steve Okwor Music by Greg Granoff

You the sick the hungry and the poor in spirit Sapped of all your earthly hopes and wishes Out of the desert the good shepherd’s calling you hear it Though your lots are but a few loaves and fishes

Love will feed you The good shepherd will care for you like he cares for the sheep
Love will cherish you The good shepherd will watch over you when awake and when asleep

You’ve come with all your misery to the Master’s feet Listening to all the savior has to say Through his love and compassion you’re complete The abundance of God is yours today

From the few loaves and fishes a lad has given Thousands of people have been duly fed What but God’s grace and the touch of heaven Could have increased the fishes and the bread

From where your paths have been unclear and hopes dim There the good shepherd has been calling From inside darkness he’ll lead you to light follow him That you may bring this hope to those who have fallen

Love will feed you The good shepherd will care for you like he cares for the sheep Love will cherish you The good shepherd will watch over you when awake and when asleep
