THE SHEPHERD OF THE STARS, by            
First Line: Across the silent fields of night
Last Line: Gathering in his stars.
Subject(s): Stars


Across the silent fields of Night,
When Dusk lets down the bars,
One wrapped in mystic robes of light
Goes shepherding the stars.

With patient and unerring skill
His myriad flocks are driven
Over the age-old trails that still
Climb the steep heights of heaven.

He herds them down the Milky Way;
Infinity is crossed;
Yet not one ever goes astray
Nor one small star is lost.

Across the silent fields of Night,
As Dawn puts up the bars,
I think I see One robed in light
Gathering in His stars.
