Shepherd of the lost,
each one of us,
no matter how insignificant or how important we are in the eyes of the world,
belongs to you.
Shepherd of the found,
we rejoice that each gift we give,
no matter how large or how small,
is appreciated by you.
Thank you for lifting us up and carrying us
today and every day.
