~~ Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me. ~~
Because I have trusted,
Because I have trusted my Shepherd, who has led me onto paths of righteousness,
And who has led me to peaceful places of plenty and rest,
Because I have wanted nothing else,
I can rest in the knowledge of His protection when I am suddenly surrounded by hills and death.
When I cannot see the next step, I will fear no evil.
Because my gentle all-knowing Shepherd is right by my side.
He never leaves my side.
Through the sunny skies and days of dark, He is always there, guiding my every step.
~~ Your rod and staff, they comfort me. ~~
He gently prods me to keep moving, even if I am frozen with fear.
If I am about to stumble off the path, He catches me and gently brings me back to His side.
Because He has proven Himself faithful over and over,
Because He has provided for my every need and I want nothing,
I can trust Him in the valley of the shadow of death.
The valley won’t last forever; however, when in the midst, it seems like it.
He will lead you out.
Keep trusting Him.
He is faithful.
