With the LORD as "YOUR SHEPHERD" you have all that you need, For, if you "FOLLOW IN HIS FOOTSTEPS" wherever HE may lead, HE will guard and guide and keep you in HIS loving, watchful care And, when traveling in 'dark valleys," 'YOUR SHEPHERD" will be there... His goodness is unfailing, HIS kindness knows no end, For THE LORD is a "GOOD SHEPHERD" on whom you can depend... So when your heart is troubled, you'll find quiet, peace and calm If you open up the Bible and just read this treasured Psalm.
This is a poem Helen Steiner Rice wrote: Go to Your Bible for Help There's peace and calm in the 23rd Psalm
