Meditation
Shepherd me, O God, beyond all my wants, beyond my fears from death into life.
Dear God, you sustain and fed me: like a shepherd you guide me. You lead me to an oasis of green, to lie down by restful waters.
Shepherd me, O God, beyond all my wants, beyond my fears from death into life.
Quenching my thirst, you restore my life: renewed and refreshed, I follow you, a journey on the narrowest of paths. You keep me true to your name
-Excerpts from Psalm 23: The Shepherd and The Host (J. Cotter)
