Goodness and Mercy

From either side of the flock
They will run ahead and block the way,
Then they'll run back behind
And push where they're supposed to go.

Though not a bark is heard,
They may well resort to giving the eye,
Staring without scaring,
A balance point they must observe.

Goodness and Mercy,
Sheepdogs extraordinaire,
One to meet every need
The other for when we stray
All along the journey home.

Psalm 23:6
