A Sheep Dog's Christmas Carol

Recommended Posts

Here once again is my annual remembrance of the holiday season:


Near Bethlehem some time ago,

A flock of sheep was dwelling.

To shepherds, sheep, and sheep dog, too,

Angel choirs came telling.


Good news, not fear, to all the world,

A baby in a manger.

"We'd leave to see," the shepherds said,

"But our sheep would be in danger."


"To watch the flock, we'll leave the dog,

While seeking mankind's Savior.

The dog will guard and keep the sheep

From wandering behavior."


Though disappointed not to go

To Bethlehem's blest stable,

The dog felt duty-bound to work

As well as it was able.


The shepherds came at last and praised

God for Christ revealing,

Too wonder-struck to praise the dog

That gave them time for kneeling.


But God Himself spoke to the dog

In tones for canine hearing.

His words inspired all dogs to serve

For ages persevering:


"Good and faithful servant, well done."
