The Lord is my Shephard

Hold me Lord, in Your loving embrace,
Feeling lonely, lost and so confused.
I need so much to feel your grace,
All my life I’ve been so abused.

Show me Your strength and bathe me in light,
I need some peace and just a little joy.
Will I ever be able to make things right,
Is all of this just another ploy?

The hunger I’ve felt cannot be compared,
I cannot explain the evil I’ve seen.
Can this world ever really be repaired,
Can we ever again truly be clean?

Anger, resentment, guilt and shame,
How can we live and how can we love.
We’re always looking for someone to blame,
With no room in out hearts for God above.

We spend so much time in spiteful madness,
That we lose ourselves in pointless hate.
How could one rather live in such sadness,
Then learn to forgive before it’s too late.

It takes more work to keep hate in our hearts,
Than to simply let go and love each other.
Why let our life’s troubles keep us apart,
We should join in prayer and help one another.

Jealousy and greed have gotten us nowhere,
Always competing with those who have more.
Never again will I let myself go there,
Trapped in a place where nothing’s for sure.

There’s a love inside me growing so strong,
The passion I feel I can’t quite explain.
I want to sing out in glorious song,
To share with all what I cannot detain.

The Lord is my Shephard I shall not want,
He’s all that I need and all that I am.
I have nothing to hide and nothing to flaunt,
The Lord is my Shephard and I am His lamb.

The Lord is my Shephard
