The Lord is her Shepherd,
She has no regrets or unmet needs.
For her Shepherd guided her faithfully through a rich and fulfilled life.
He made her to lie down in a beautiful green
To give her rest from her work.
She was secure in Him and could entrust her loved ones to Him as well.
Together she and the Shepherd walked along quiet brooks and streams.
He restored her soul and refreshed her by
washing away all her burdens and cares.
He guided her along the path of righteousness and enabled her to honor Him in every way;
As others observed, they were amazed at her godly responses to stressful and fearful
There could be no other source of her new found peace and strength than the Shepherd Himself.
Even though she did have to walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
She feared no evil.
She remained calm and spoke of trust.
Her spirit grew sweeter by the hour, and love freely flowed from her.
Just to enter her room brought unexplained joy.
For the Shepherd was with her.
He picked her up into His arms and carried her on Home.
His rod and staff they comforted her.
For she knew full well that the Shepherd had
authority over life and death.
He gladly supported her in his own arms.
He prepared a beautiful table for her to enjoy.
Right in the face of death, He set before her
He made her feel special and loved and
welcomed in His home.
He anointed her her head with oil, as if she was royalty.
He blessed her heart so much that she couldn’t hold it all inside and is spilled out onto all of us.
Surely goodness and mercy will be found
everywhere she’s ever been, touching all she knew.
Now she will live in the Shepherd’s House
forever, where she can find rest and be at peace.
Her heart’s desires will be within reach, always.
She will run and skip and dance to beautiful
music, standing straight and tall.
She will have no more weakness, no more pain.
The Shepherd will wipe away all her tears,
As He fully awaken her heart to all the
beauties of home.
