My Shepherd, My Friend

Written by Les Dahl on July 4, 2013. Posted in Peace



O Yahweh, my Shepherd, my Keeper, my Companion, my Friend…

Under Your loving, watchful care,

I cannot fail nor do I lack of any good thing.

Your gentle but firm Hand brings me to repose,

And as I feed on the tender green shoots springing up in Your pastures —

the affirming, invigorating promises in Your Word —

my anxieties are relieved;

Your shalom settles my heart and my mind.

The tender nudge of Your Spirit carries me

to the peaceful, healing streams

that flow from the watersprings of Heaven;

my soul is restored —

made like new again by the breath of Your Spirit

by which Adam became a living soul…

I am alive…

I am confident…

I am able…

I am ready…

Lead me on, my Shepherd, my Friend.

Amen — so be it — so it is…

(Psalm 23:1-3)
