Your Majesty.

What will You look like when I see You
Coming right down from the sky?
I’d like it if You were a Shepherd
Holding the children nigh.

The Jesus pictured by artists
With long hair and soft brown eyes
Not white haired with eyes blazing
I’d be so scared I’d want to hide

You could come as a king with a crown, Lord
With robes of scarlet and gold
But don’t come as a fearsome avenger
What an awesome sight to behold !

Please come as a gentle Shepherd
Gathering up Your sheep
You see, I’m not old and not very bold
But I want to be Yours for keeps.
