Jesus my King,
Out walking one day I saw an open gate
inviting me in.
What lay beyond?
Was it safe to take a peek – to step inside?
Jesus said ‘I am the gate of the sheep.
If anyone comes in by me, they will be safe,
and will go in and out and find pasture.’
I am so thankful that you, Jesus,
guard the gate for me,
that you keep me safe,
and that you recognise me
when I call to you.
Help me to recognise your voice
and follow you in love and trust
when you call me
inviting me in;
So that I may have the life you bring
and have it full to overflowing.
Amen Jackie Smith
