The Lord is my Shepherd
The Holy Lamb of God
In Him, I have everything I need

Rest in green pastures
He has prepared for me
Beside still waters, He leads me

He restores my soul
Guides me in the path of righteousness
Bringing glory and honor to his name
Even though I walk through the valley
of the shadow of death
.
I will not be afraid, I will not fear evil

For the Lord my God he’s beside me
His rod and staff protect and comfort me
He prepares a place, before me
In the presence of my enemies.

He anoints my head with oil
My cup is running over
Surely goodness and mercy
Shall follow all the days of my life
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord
I will live in the house of the Lord
I will be forever with the Lord.

Artist Comments

I wrote this song directly from the Book of Psalms. This is one of the most popular of all psalms
 and thought to be written by King David towards the end of life.

Psalm 23 shows us two descriptions of the Lord as Shepherd caring for the psalmist's every need and a description of the Lord as Shepherd extending His mercy to all of us.

Sheep are very fearful animals and cannot lie down unless they feel totally secure. Sheep are afraid of fast flowing streams. God's provision of still waters has a soothing effect and calms the sheep.

God refreshes His people with with His quiet voice and gentle touch. For this reason the sheep know the Shepherd and are known by Him.

Ancient shepherds would use a rod and staff to rescue, protect and guide the sheep. Thus they become symbols of the Good Shepherd's loving care over his flock. The sheep are not alone; their Shepherd is standing over them guiding them into safety - Just as Our Lord stands over us and protects us.

We are the sheep whose Shepherd is the Lord, Jesus Christ. He is the Good Shepherd whose flock trust in Him.
At the end of this journey on earth, we will live in the house of the Lord,
 with the Lord forever.

 Psalm 23
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
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 runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord, Forever.

Zechariah 9:16
The Lord their God will save his people on that day as a shepherd saves his flock. They will sparkle in his land like jewels in a crown.

 Matthew 25:32
All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
