My Shepherd - Poem by Loyd C. Taylor, Sr.

MY SHEPHERD

Psalm 23

A Song of Praise

The Lord is my shepherd, to Him I belong;
He's ever here with me, I'm never alone;
He holds fast my hands in the valleys so low.
My shepherd loves me and I, too, love Him so.

The Lord is my shepherd and He loves me too,
Through all the dark valleys He leadeth me through;
To springs of still waters He safely shall guide,
I've nothing to fear with Him by my side.

The Lord is my shepherd and I shall not want.
The times when I'm weak, my shepherd is strong.
He'll not let me down nor once leave my side;
My shepherd is near and on Him I rely.

The Lord is my shepherd, He leadeth the way.
His mercy and grace close by me will stay.
From His watchful care, I never will stray;
I'll be His forever for all of my days.

The Lord is my shepherd and He loves me too,
Through all the dark valleys He leadeth me through;
By springs of still waters He maketh me lie,
I've nothing to fear with Him by my side.
