The Lord is my Shepherd, who in kindness leads me to quiet rest.
Because of His tender care. I am richly blessed.
He restores my strength and revives me when I am weary.
He gives me light to guide me when the path grows dreary.
Like a faithful Guide, He leads me along the journey each day.
His Word and Spirit point me goal, lest I stray.
Though at times I walk through dark valleys, I have no fear.
I go in peace and joy, knowing that He is near.
He provides for my needs and pours oil of blessing over my head.
As I sleep, He sends angels to stand guard around my bed.
The Shepherd never sleeps, but guards me from all harm.
When I stumble, He upholds me with His might arm.
He spreads a table of blessings before me and feeds me with love.
His eye is always upon me, watching from heaven above.
Goodness and mercy shall follow me and I am forever blessed.
In the arms of the Divine Shepherd., I will find peace and rest.
