I Am the Good Shepherd

stjohnsashfield_stainedglass_goodshepherd-frame_cropO Lord Jesus Christ,
you are the Good Shepherd,
and you call your own by name.
Let people everywhere hear your voice
and follow you on the path of life,
that so there may be one flock,
and one Shepherd;
to the honor and glory of your name.

This prayer references  John 10

“and follow you on the path of life” in A Book of Collects the line is given as “and follow thee into the abundant life.”
