Full Answer

"Grace" by Daniel Sherman acknowledges and understands that a pastor carries a heavy burden and performs a difficult job. The poem recognizes the pastor as being sent by God to comfort and deliver kind and gentle words. In "A Gift" by Judy Crowe, the poem tells the pastor, "Thank you and God bless you," and explains that this gift is one of the greatest gifts of all, unlike any other.

In "My Pastor, My Guide," by Coralie Thornton, the sentiment expressed is one of gratitude for a pastor who has taught ways of loving and living rightly, the ways of following Jesus. It is short – only six lines long – but this poem makes a loving and tender point to a warm and loving pastor.

"Proud To Call You My Pastor" by Cynthia Ogletree is written for male clergy and expresses gratitude for all of the positive qualities that make a pastor so wonderful.
