Psalms 23:1 The LORD is my Shepherd; I shall not want.


THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD

He gives happiness in the morning
and a peaceful dream at night
When things don't go so smoothly
He walks right by your side

Many dangers may surround you
but He's the One who cares
The evil tries to trap you
He'll keep you from the snares

Some days you feel like crying
but still there is a smile
Cause His Love is all around you
tears won't come for a while

No matter what you feel like
or what your eyes may see
You'll never have to fear though
what'er your troubles may be

He'll give you strength and comfort
and carries you through this life
He also guides your path now
saving you a lot of strife

Your life may not be wasted
when you've not learned at first
He gives you second chances
and makes so you will thirst

Then you'll freely follow Him
to waters clean and deep
He'll be watching while you drink
just like the Shepherd and His sheep

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.Psalm 23:2

FREELY GRAZE

As He carries me in His loving arms
through rough terrain and life's rocky way
I am comforted by His warmth
and soon forget all earthly dismay

His heartbeat is so close to mine
it is steady , always the same
Our connection is a Divine line
a crimson stream by which Salvation came

His eyes speak of Love, showing His smile
as He gently takes me by the hand
guiding me through another mile
of valleys and hilly land

While I walk, He keeps me in sight
as His call surpasses worldly noise
I'am directed to take a different flight
still higher, to better hear His voice

He taught me to follow His trodden path
no longer I need to roam around
Freely I graze, fearing no aftermath
in a place where joy and love abound

He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness
for His name's sake. Psalms 23:3

PRAYER

Mold me, O Lord, into Your image and after Your will.
Shape me, O Father, into a useful tool in Your Hands.
Form me, O Redeemer, so I can be Your Hand extended.
Refresh my soul, O Saviour, that I may tirelessly
reach out to those that are in need.
Open my mind's eye so I may clearly see
Your purpose before me.

Remind us, Father, of Your great love and
may we experience the touch of Your Hand as we
bow down in humility at Your feet. We'll glorify
Your name as we walk well-pleasing before You.
Prepare our hearts, and teach us how to receive
from You so our needs may be met.


Enlarge our faith, that we may move mountains,
Wonderful and Glorious Redeemer, Counselor
Prince of Peace, Mighty God, Everlasting.
Father, we give You ALL our praises, for You
ARE WORTHY. Thank You for directing
our paths, as we commit our ways unto You.
Hallelujah ! Amen !

* * * * *

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
Psalms 23:6
