Lay me on Your shoulders, Jesus:
Carry me to rest,
To rest.
Heal me in Your kindly Presence;
Give me all Your best.

Shelter me within Your arms, God:
Sing to me of love—
Your love.
Heal me in Your kindly Presence –
This I’m dreaming of!

Strengthen me again for battle:
Fill me ‘til I
Let me live that those around me
Your great love may know.

Luke 15:5
“And when he has found it [the lost sheep], he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing.”

In my own life, I suppose this could also apply to sheep that are not exactly lost, but wearily wandering without proper direction.
