Woe to You Fat Shepherds
Words and music by Jason Bellard

Key Em // Guitar Capo 7 ( Am Em )

Verse 1
Too many men write books about things they don’t know
And in the name of Jesus Christ they sell it so
No one is searching for the truth, no one to show themselves approved
They’d rather gain the Word and forfeit their own soul
They guarantee a life of wealth and luxury
And claim that this is living life abundantly
Too many lonely hearts then sow their seeds
To idols made of pride and greed
And perish every second without hope

Chorus 1
Woe to you fat shepherds, all of you fat shepherds
Who feed yourself and leave my sheep to starve alone
Woe to you fat shepherds, all of you fat shepherds
It’s true I never knew you all along, oh all along

Verse 2
Their cup is being filled to overflow
But they haven’t a clue yet what this cup holds
God’s holy burning anger, His hatred for their deeds
They pride themselves as men of high esteem
And never heard a word but vanity

Chorus 2
Woe to you fat shepherds, all of you fat shepherds
Who feed yourself and leave my sheep to starve alone
Woe to you fat shepherds, all of you fat shepherds
It’s true I never knew you all along

Verse 3
And it’s truly prideful, the praises that they sing
Time and time again, once more they give a looted offering
Chorus
