My Shepherd

"Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me." Psalm 23:4

My Shepherd

Old pictures framed in black
The taste of salty tears
Sadness, scars, and brokenness
The vanity of years

That day You reached and saved me
From Satan's stranglehold
Healing, peace, and freedom
The future framed in gold

Oh, God of Angel Armies
Stretch out Your mighty hand
Oh, Spirit, precious Comforter
Give strength and help me stand.

Oh, Shepherd, always faithful
Lead on 'til earth is past
Your rod and staff, they comfort still
And Your firm grip holds fast.
