The Good Shepherd
" I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep,
and am known of mine.
As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father:
and I lay down my life for the sheep.
And other sheep I have, which
are not of this fold: them also I must bring,
and they shall hear my voice; and
there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
Therefore doth my Father love me,
because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself.
I have power to lay it down,
and I have power to take it again.
This commandment have I received of my Father. "
