Psalm 23

​The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.

He makes me lie down in green pastures,

he leads me beside quiet waters,

he refreshes my soul.

He guides me along the right paths

for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk

through the darkest valley,

I will fear no evil,

for you are with me;

your rod and your staff,

they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me

in the presence of my enemies.

You anoint my head with oil;

my cup overflows.

Surely your goodness and love will follow me

all the days of my life,

and I will dwell in the house of the LORD


​Thanks for bringing me here Lord

I needed the rest

I wanted to stop

I wanted to get away

But you know how it is

Always something to be done.

And so you make me

You make me lie down.

Even now, after all this time,

I can’t always tell when I need time out

To recharge, restore, revive

My flagging soul.

So you make me

And you bring me

Here to this place

Of peace and quiet and rest

Beside still waters.

You make me

Because you know what’s best

Better than I do (though its hard to admit!)

And I drink it in

And lie down on green grass

And my soul is restored

Thanks for bringing me here Lord
