Thank you for your interest in the Scripture-based music of Voice of the Shepherd, a Messianic/Christian worship group. Two decades ago, the Lord gave the members of Voice of the Shepherd original songs based on the words and people in the Bible. Ultimately, interest in the music waned and the songs were seemingly forgotten long ago. But as the Lord says in Jeremiah 29:11: “I know the plans I have for you. Plans for good and not for evil. To give you a future and a hope”. Unexpectedly, nearly 25 years after the songs were written, recorded, and performed, the Lord has chosen to open a door to revive this music for “such a time as this.” It is an honor and joy to share the Lord’s music with you.
The music you are about to hear was given to Voice of the Shepherd by the Lord as a freely given gift. Therefore, it is our privilege to invite you to listen and download each song for free. First, there are a few things we would like to mention.
The Lord did not live in an English-speaking society so His Name would not have been Jesus (which means Messiah) but rather Yeshua (salvation). Accordingly, we use the Name Yeshua in our songs.
We believe the Bible (both the Old and New Covenants) is the true, accurate, and inspired Word of God. This means that the individuals found in the pages of the Bible were real people, with real lives, and real problems. Many of our songs were written from the perspective of these all too human characters. For example, John the Baptist as he encounters Yeshua for the first time in A Dove Flew Down; Abraham as he faces an agonizing decision concerning his son Isaac in God Will Provide; and the unnamed woman whose 12-year issue of blood would have left isolated and outcast as depicted in the song Hem of Grace.
Voice of the Shepherd has done our best to faithfully reflect the words of the Scriptures. However, our music is a poor substitute for the real thing. We encourage you to read the actual Bible passages on which our music is based. Worship leaders and individuals: you are invited to sing or play any of our songs, or use them in a church or worship setting. We ask only that you don’t record or sell these copyright-protected songs without our permission.
Voice of the Shepherd gratefully offers our praise and thanks to our Lord and Savior, Yeshua the Messiah, who is the real author of our music. May these songs of hope and healing be an encouragement and help you better hear the voice of the Shepherd.
In Yeshua/Jesus Service,
