Shepherd
Words from Psalm 23 and by Elizabeth Ragsdale
Music by Elizabeth Ragsdale

The Lord is my shepherd. I shall not want.
The fullness of his love is more than enough.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures.
I take delight in the comfort that he supplies.

He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul.
He guides me away from the storm to a place where love is reborn.
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
I walk in all his ways, honoring him with my praise.

Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil for thou art with me.
I trust you to lead me out from the depths of doubt.

Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Gentle your rod of correction, steady your staff of affection.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies.
Your feast of understanding is redeemed from error’s planting.
Thou anointest my head with oil. My cup runneth over.
As your inspiration flows, my love for you grows.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life.
Pursued by your grace, I’m forever safe.
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
A home filled with harmony throughout eternity.
