When I make the Lord my Shepherd,

He leaves nothing more to want.

He leads me out of my wilderness

To a place where I can feed and rest.

He calms the storms within

And heals my wounded heart.

When choosing to follow His instruction,

 stop trying to sit on His throne.

Then, I can walk through the storm

Knowing evil can't touch me.

His presence becomes so real

All else is barely noticed.

He directs my every step

So all landmines are missed.

His Spirit swells up within me,

My heart overflows with joy ...

And the love of God

Begins to exude through me.

It is then that I truly

Dwell in the Lord's House.

And now, I can't imagine having

Chosen to live any other way.
