about

This original Christmas song tells the story of a young shepherd's encounter with the Good News. Special thanks to my mom for the Christmas quilt pictured to the right.

lyrics

Lyrics:

I have wandered here so long, these desolate scenes
Watching my flock by day, with more in my dreams
I was called out long ago, and my father before me
He said, "Son, your job's to watch over these sheep."

Little did I know, those many years ago
That one day I would see, a lamb born to watch over me

I've wrestled wolves and weathered winds, I've faced many fears
But nothing quite like that night when the angel appeared
I fell on my face, to a voice like trumpet blasts
Saying "This night is born a Savior who will free us all at last
For like your sheep you've gone astray
But the Good Shepherd born today,
He's a keeper of men, and He won't rest
Till they're all safely gathered in."

So I went straight away to the sight
Led by one star's brilliant light
And there at the scene, it was all that I could say -
"Behold the Lamb, who takes our sins away."

Behold the Lamb, who takes our sins away
Behold the Lamb, who takes our sins away

I still wander through these fields, but nothing is the same
I was called out long ago, called out by name
And not a day goes by when I don't think of what my father told me
He said, "Son, your job's to watch over these sheep."

Little did I know, those many years ago
That one day I would see, a Lamb born to watch over me
