The peaceful tinkle of a bell,
a sunrise dawning clear––
The Shepherd may not be in view,
but He is always near.


“I will be on your right hand and on your left, and my Spirit shall be in your hearts, and my angels round about you, to bear you up.” – D&C 84:88

“I am the good shepherd and know my sheep, and am known of mine.”
–  John 10:14

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
–  John 14:27
