My Shepherd is the Lord on high.
With Him, no want I know.
He leads me by still waters, and
Green pastures will He show.
He leads me on in righteousness;
I tread for His name’s sake.
Through death’s dark valley, I must go.
This journey, I must take.
Still, I will fear no evil for
I know that You are near.
Your rod and staff, they comfort me.
I feel Your presence here.
You set a table with my foes,
With oil, anoint my head,
My cup of joy just overflows.
My heart will feel no dread.
Your goodness and Your mercy will
Be with me all my days.
I know I’ll dwell in my Lord’s house.
Forever hear my praise.

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the (c) is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!
Beautiful, just beautiful…
Thanks. I’ve been trying to do the 23rd Psalm for some time and couldn’t get it. Then, the other night after I lay down, it started coming to me. God has His special times to speak to me and I have to write on His schedule, not mine.
