A good shepherd takes care of his sheep.
He brings them to rest
in green meadows,
and he leads them to drink
cool water from quiet streams.
God takes care of me just as well.
He shows me the right way to go,
so all the world will see
that God is good.
A good shepherd watches over his sheep.
He reaches out with his staff
and pulls them out of trouble,
and with his rod
he protects them from danger.
So even when things look dark and scary,
I will not be afraid,
because God is with me.
When trouble seems to be all around,
God prepares a feast for me.
I am his special guest,
and his blessings overflow.
God's goodness and forgiveness
will be with me all of my life,
and I will live with him forever.
