The Lord is my Shepherd into deep valleys green
He leads with His staff by a quiet soft stream
But when sin beckons, He tells me to walk
On the straight narrow way through the cleft in the rock
And through the valley of shadows and tears
His rod and His staff comfort all of my fears
When my enemies set up an ambush ahead
He shows me a table where His banquet is spread
Then If I stop to worry about things left undone
His goodness and mercy lead me farther along
With His cross ever guiding like a good shepherd’s staff
We will come to His house when our journey is past!

Nice lyrical version of the Psalm, Pastor Pete. Do you have a melody for it?
First of all thank you for reading and commenting on Shepherd’s Staff. People often ask me about a melody to various of my poems and sometimes the Lord has graciously given one. I will sit down with my guitar and Jesus and see! Blessings!
Go for it! 😉👍
