My Safe Lead

Lord,

you are my refuge,

my safe harbor,

my enclosed garden,

my green pasture,

you guide me by quiet waters,

along paths of righteousness,

you restore my soul,

I dwell secure for you are my sukka,

your grace abides in me and I in you.

Through the valleys and mountaintops,

to level plateaus,

I will journey with you my Lord,

and be bold and courageous,

because you are my faithful and good Shepherd,

you’re always with me,

you’ll never leave me nor forsake me.

I bless you Lord,

Amen.

You’re With Me

Lord Emmanuel,

God with me,

let me hear your voice,

wash me with the radiance of your presence,

my Beloved is radiant and ruddy,

smelling of rich earth and life

dew, grass, and flowers awakening in the morning.

Strong and sure in His steps,

He leads me through green pastures and rest,

quiet streams and safe paths.

His eyes are clear and blue with light,

alive with revelation and truth,

guiding me in the night,

through dark valleys where I cannot see.

Powerful and frightening toward my enemies,

the Lion of Judah swings His staff,

His might destroys my enemies,

His rod always keeps me close.

Never will He lose me,

always His watchful eye is on me,

“Follow Me” He says,

and He guides me with gentleness and care,

up and up to the mountain of God.

where I hope to dwell with Him,

in the kingdom of His rule and reign forever and ever.

Help me, give me grace

to keep my eyes on you and follow you Lord

all the days of my life,

I love you.

Amen.
