Make Me A Shepherd Of Your Heart
MAKE ME A SHEPHERD OF YOUR HEART
by MELVIN BANGGOLLAY
I have searched so long in the wilderness
Looking for a heart to love with tenderness
Until I came upon a verdant pasture of beauty
Where I behold your smile that enchanted me.
Please make me a shepherd of your heart
and I will never rest to guard you from the start
against sorrows touch for I love you so much
With a true and tender love that has no match.
I will lay my life to keep you safe from madness,
or from any trouble haunting your loveliness
for I have made a vow to love you with all loyalty
and every breath I have even beyond eternity.
Make me then a shepheared of your heart
That I can share with you the charm of my art,
My great passion entwined with a gentle touch
That will make you forever smile with joy unmatch.
