Do You Love Me?

After breakfast on the seashore,
Jesus set about to restore
Peter’s love, that he would henceforth
Not trust himself,
He committed some big failures,
Three times denying the Savior,
Then leading others to waver,
Yet Jesus said...
  Do you love me? Feed my lambs,
Do you love me? Shepherd my sheep,
Do you love me?
Then give My sheep something to eat.
We, like Peter, all have stumbled,
Such defeats make our strength crumble,
Our once proud hearts become humble,
We are so low,
In these moments the Lord comes in,
Seeking our love and affection,
As we listen, we can hear Him
Saying to us...
In these days the Lord is hindered
Because of a lack of shepherds
Who dispense the milk of the Word
To the lost sheep,
He needs man’s cooperation,
To let Him shepherd from within,
Will you be one who is open
And say to Him...
  Lord, I love You! I’ll feed Your lambs,
Lord I love You! I’ll shepherd Your sheep,
Lord I love You!
I’ll give Your sheep something to eat.
