Once I had gone astray. I was lost and dying,
But like the good shepherd You are, You found me and rejoiced.
You came and searched for me and brought me home
Carrying me upon Your strapping shoulders.
You rescued me from all my many troubles.
I want for nothing for You meet my every need.
You leads me to pastures green with life
And cause me to rest beside the quite waters of peace.
My strength and health thou does restore to me
Cause my soul to be well with me.
Thy holy hands blesses my head and heart
Anointed me with the oil of righteousness and wisdom.
I am no longer afraid for You are with me
I follow every step of the path on which You lead me.
You will not let me wander off into dangerous pits.
My enemies You will subdue and bring to shame.
I am in Your hand and nothing can take me from You.
Your goodness and loving kindness will always be with me.
By Your sacrifice, I am forgiven and brought back into the fold.
Your flock will dwell in Your house forever.
Thy people and the sheep of thy pasture
Will give thanks to Thee forever
To all generations we will tell of Thy praise
For Thou are the good and mighty Shepherd.
