2 shepherd the flock of God which [is] among you, exercising oversight, not by necessity, but willingly; not for base gain, but readily; 3 not as lording it over your possessions, but being models for the flock. 4 And when the chief shepherd is manifested ye shall receive the unfading crown of glory.
Hail! Lord of Hosts, Thou Man of war!
So soon to reign from shore to shore,
We own Thy peerless worth.
Now from between the cherubim,
The rights of God to claim for Him,
O Shepherd Thou, shine forth!
