You are my Shepherd Lord

You are all that I need.
You are my Shepherd Lord
I will follow where Youlead
When my heart is troubled
I find peace and quiet rest
When my heart is troubled Lord
My troubles are now blessed

You are my Shepherd Lord
You will guide me in Your care
You are my Shepherd Lord
You will always be there
When my heart is troubled
I find peace and quiet rest
When my heart is troubled Lord
My troubles are now blessed

You are my Shepherd Lord
Your kindness knows no end
You are my Shepherd Lord
On You I can depend
When my heart is troubled
I find peace and quiet rest
When my heart is troubled Lord
My troubles are now blessed

Savior like a shepherd lead us
Much we need thy tender care
In thy pleasant pastures feed us
For our use thy folds prepare
Blessed Jesus blessed Jesus
Thou hast bought us thine we are
Blessed Jesus blessed Jesus
Thou has bought us thine we are

Psalm "Twenty-Three is probably one of King David's best and most renowned. Many of David’s psalms are full of complaints, but this is full of comforts, with expressions of delight in God’s great goodness and dependence upon him.

David the King, is probably later on in life, far removed from a quiet sheep-cotes to rule over Israel. He now sings this little Psalm of Him, his Lord, who is the true shepherd and King of men. Here we see a fullness of experience about it, and a tone of subdued, quiet confidence which speaks of a tranquil heart calmed by many years of life's knowledge, and of a faith made sober by many a trial. A young man probably would not have written so calmly, about himself.

I realize few of us probably understand the life of the shepherd in the ancient Near East. However, with this Psalm, most of us can grasp the message of comfort and assurance, that the Psalm conveys to the believer. I'm sure we all have had times of distress, and have found comfort in the assuring words, “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.”

Just as in David's life, as we give thanks to God, He has a way of helping us understand that the story He started long ago in our lives will always end well. That's His promise to us (Philippians 1:6). You see His grace not only saves us, but satisfies and keeps us (Psalm 18:28-33, 35-36).
