Psalm 23

The Lord is my Shepherd,
He keeps me secure and safe.
His waters,
infilling void and sorrow
 with Spirit and Life,
renewing the now and the morrow.

Because He is eternal, the Rock,
I lean on His staff and His rod.
He shields me from danger,
to matter, I may be a stranger,
but to God-- a child,
loved, replete,
who, even in death's valley,
in Him-- I'm forever complete.
