SHEPHERDS of LIFE
The twelve Apostles appointed by Christ
Were given power to cast out evil within.
He sent them forth to preach, teach and heal
As Godís shepherdís from Heaven to men.
Republicans and democrats now campaign for office
In Godís land of liberty, freedom and choice.
Deliberately shaping their future in history
By their judgment, accomplishment and voice.
Once more we must choose our shepherds of life
Driven by love, liberty and countryís call.
Propelled by duty, honor and faith
Pledging to protect and defend justice for all.
Our world has become more dangerous than ever
Due to war, hate, plunder and disease.
Take heed therefore and ponder your vote
As you pray who to vote for on your knees.
