There is Peace & Calm
In the 23rd Psalm
With THE LORD as “YOUR SHEPHERD” you have all that you need,
For, if you “FOLLOW IN HIS FOOTSTEPS” wherever HE may lead,
HE will guard and guide and keep you in HIS loving, watchful care
And, when traveling in “dark valleys,” “YOUR SHEPHERD” will be there...
HIS goodness is unfailing, HIS kindness knows no end,
For THE LORD is a “GOOD SHEPHERD” on whom you can depend....
So when your heart is troubled, you’ll find quiet, peace and calm
If you open up the Bible and just read this tenured Psalm.
Helen Steiner Rice
(To make it real familiar for you this time.)
THE LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures he leadeth me beside the still waters
He restoreth my soul; he leadeth 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 thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life;
and will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
