The white sheep are gathered all in a line,
How nice–so many alike; how sublime!
A few different have wandered in . . . a spotted or two,
all ringstraked and speckled, what should we do?
We could try to corral them; tie them with knots,
but ringstraked and speckled don’t stay in one spot!
They each have their calling and are determined to go,
Oh, ringstraked and speckled, oh why won’t you flow?
Well– Jacob, you take them; you’ll know what to do,
‘Cause you’re one of those quite different ones, too!
We’ll stay with the white sheep all in a row,
Go with these new ones?– oh no!! Don’t think so.
Though it isn’t exciting here, we are at ease.
Just let us stay safe in our little world, please.
We may never see Canaan or God face to face;
Still you go ahead, Jacob, and run this new race!!
