(Paraphrase of Psalms 23)
Jesus is my Keeper; I’ll be content
as He leads me day by day
to pleasant places
to be renewed in him
along life’s pathway.
Although I often stumble through
many trials and snares,
I’ll not be dismayed
by the evil doer
as Jesus calms my fears.
How my Lord continues to
keep sustaining me
with daily showers of his
blessings with love,
mercy, and peace.
Now I know that without a doubt,
His goodness will stay with me
all the days of my
until heaven’s gates I see.
Wake each new morning
As the glistening sun is dawning.
Visiting Jesus our Lord in prayer;
Ever thankful he is our everlasting Savior.
Sounds of birds joyfully singing;
Over the treetops their trills are ringing.
Family and dear friends come to mind;
Gifts of friendship, love, and laughter entwine.
Reaching to grasp this bright new day
And enjoying all that God has made.
Ceasing never; his blessings amounting.
Ever and forever, his love and mercy abounding.
