Last Sunday we heard Mark’s account of the Twelve sent out to share
in the Saviour’s mission. Today we have the aftermath described in

Chorus - Like a shepherd he feeds his flock
Jesus Christ, our brother:
And gathers the lambs in his arms,
Feed us now, give us life, lead us to one another.
Holding them carefully close to his heart,
Leading them home. As we proclaim your death, as we recall your life,
we remember your promise to return again.
Say to the cities of Judah: CHORUS
“Prepare the way of the Lord”. The bread we break and share was scattered once as grain
Go to the mountain top, lift your voice: Just as now it is gathered, make your people one.
Jerusalem here is your God.” CHORUS
CHORUS We eat this living bread, we drink this saving cup:
I myself will shepherd them, Sign of hope in our broken world, source of lasting love.
For others have led them astray; CHORUS
The lost I will rescue and heal their wounds Hold us in unity, in love for all to see;
And pasture them, giving them rest. CHORUS That the world may believe in you, God of all who live.
