"Like Other Shepherds"

Like other shepherds
let me keep
watch o'er my flock by night;
mindful of each need, 
each hurt, which might
lead one to stray--
each weakness
and each ill--
while others sleep
teach me to pray. 
At night wolves and leopards, 
hungry and clever, prowl
in search of strays
and wounded, when they howl, 
Lord, still
my anxious heart
to calm delight--
for the Great Shepherd
watches with me
over my flock
by night.
