Besides still waters, He leads me,
to pastures green, He guides
my Shepherd’s care for me
never wanes, ebbs or subsides.
He feeds me the Good News,
with words that sustain me
He fills me with wisdom
so His truths I can see.
To the land of milk and honey,
where heavenly manna flows
my Shepherd takes me to where
my love for righteousness grows.
He corrects with tender affection,
sometimes with His rod
but, I know His staff of love
will steer me to the throne of God.
Into the valley He takes me,
where I can sip from His well
the spring of Life-Giving waters
keeps my soul from the pit of hell.
Besides still waters, He guides,
to pastures green, He leads me
my Shepherds’ care will never cease
until with Him in heaven I’ll be.
King James Version
“He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters.”
Deborah Ann Belka
