You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows…” (Psalm 23:1-5)


Though the way be treacherous,
The path unclear,
My heart ever heavy
With trembling, with fear,

The ground beneath me
Rocky and steep,
Though the peace of rest
Elude me at sleep,

I will look to You,
Your Name I will cry,
I will see Your face
Through tear-stained eye,

I will smile again
To feel Your hand,
I will rest assured
In all You planned,

I will sing Your praise
As You lift me up,
I will rejoice to drink
Your overflowing cup,

I will dance with abandon
In Your eternal light,
I will burst with joy
Through day, through night.

Yes, I will look up
To You, Most High,
For in clinging to You
My soul does fly,

My heart delights
That me You keep
As Your precious beloved
Little sheep…

And I will release
Every single fear,
For Lord Jesus, my Shepherd,
You are near!
