Shepherd Me, O God (Marty Haugen)


Shepherd me, O God,
beyond my wants,
beyond my fears,
from death into life.
God is my shepherd,
so nothing shall I want,
I rest in the meadows
of faithfulness and love,
I walk by the quiet waters of peace. (Refrain)

Gently you raise me
and heal my weary soul,
you lead me by pathways
of righteousness and truth,
my spirit shall sing
the music of your name. (Refrain)

Though I should wander
the valley of death,
I fear no evil,
for you are at my side,
your rod and your staff,
my comfort and my hope. (Refrain)

You have set me a banquet of love
in the face of hatred,
crowning me with love
beyond my pow’r to hold. (Refrain)

Surely your kindness and mercy
follow me all the days of my life;
I will dwell in the house of my God
forevermore. (Refrain)

Setting of Psalm 23 (Dominus regit me).

Words & Music: Marty Haugen (b. 1950)
