~ My Heavenly Father ~
My Father leads and protects me,
as the Shepherd does his sheep.
I do not want for anything,
as he consoles me even in sleep.
The pastures of everyday living,
though rocky and uncertain at times,
Proclaim his devotion and caring,
even suffering in winter times.
I stand up with fearful what if's,
as he guides me through the storm.
The evil surrounding me disappears,
His armor of righteousness transform.
My enemies are no more in sight,
His light of glory is all I see.
His goodness and mercy anoint me,
dwelling in the Lord's house I'm free.
