Scatted Sheep, Dying Lamb (Lent Poems 11)

Do not let
Your hearts be troubled
My father’s house has
Many rooms
If it were not so
I would have told you
Do not fear; I
Will not forget you.
I go to make a
Place for you.
If it were not so
I would surely have told you
Do not fear, my
Sheep: you will scatter, but
I am the good shepherd.
I lay my life down for
My scattered sheep. It
Is surely so, for I have told you
Do not let this moment
Test you. Peter, I have prayed
That you will not fail
Peter, you must feed my lambs.
It will be so, for I will tell you.
And my word is true
Do not fear, I
Am the lamb who
Lays his life down for
The sheep. Do not fear;
I will not fail you.
Do not fear.
I am the truth
