Flip flops & lollipops, torches and mobiles,
Night shepherds on the streets
Ready to walk miles
Cleaning up cans- and glass, Old
Town to White Rock-
These are Street Pastors attending their flock

Prayer Pastors intercede the night watch their calling
Praying for straying sheep, to prevent
them from falling,
Ready to hear the call
Always alert
Pleading and crying that none will be hurt

When the girls scream, while the men fight
The Night Scene’s gone mad
Night Shepherds tend the flock
Re-storing peace and calm
Then things don’t seem so bad.
