Uplifting Poetry

My Shepherd  
The Lord is my Shepherd, His care is my crown,
 In pastures of plenty He layeth me down,
 My soul He restoreth when troubles are nigh,
 Beside the still waters, contented am I.  
The Lord is my Shepherd, His peace is my fill,
 In seasons of sorrow I trust in Him still,
 How bright is the promise my hope rests upon,
 Beyond death’s dark shadow the glory shines on.  
The Lord is my Shepherd, His rod and His staff
 Will comfort and guide me each step of the path,
 In times of affliction I fear not the foe,
 My cup runneth over, how sweet is the flow.  
The Lord is my Shepherd, wherever I roam,
 His goodness and mercy shall follow me home;
 And when all my trials and labours are o’er,
 I’ll dwell in the house of my Lord evermore.  
Come trust in my Shepherd and know Him to be
 Your Friend and Companion o’er life’s stormy sea,
 Who’ll keep you and guide you the pathway before
 Safe home to His heavenly fold evermore.
