I remember that you lead, guide, and protect me,
I have no lack.
I bless you for rest
in the soft green meadows,
hearing the trickling of streams,
and lapping of quiet waters,
you restore my soul
by showing me yourself,
teaching me your ways,
guiding me to paths of life,
all for your glory.
Even though darkness surrounds,
and the enemy prowls
waiting to shoot his flaming arrows,
I won’t be afraid because you’re close,
you’re always with me,
I’ll cling to you,
you show me the way out,
guide and counsel me,
protect and deliver me.
You favor me, honoring me
despite my enemy’s schemes and ways,
you put him to shame.
You anoint my head with oil,
gladness and joy sing from my heart,
my waking, breathing, walking, going,
all my days are blessed in your presence,
surrounded, comforted, lifted up by your goodness and mercy,
and I will praise your name forever.
