The Lord Is My...

The Lord is my Shepherd and I shall not want
His love can’t be weighed with a song or with font
When I’m stemming the tide but I’m still all at sea
I can trust that my Savior is carrying me

The Lord is my Strength when my chips are cast down
He raises a smile through an unbroken frown
When I’m under attack – feel like quitting the field
I can trust that my God is my strength and my shield

The Lord is my Light in this shadowy time
He washes me down and he scrubs off my grime
When I’m straining my eyes but can only see dark
I can trust that the Lord will provide a new spark

The Lord is my Rock and a beacon that burns
He provides a safe house when there’s nowhere to turn
When I’m looking for shelter, I don’t have to knock
I can trust that his throne room is always unlocked

The Lord is my Salvation, my only way home
He keeps calling me to him, wherever I roam
When the final day comes and all evil departs
I can trust there’s a place left for me in his heart

Nice work, Tom, and based upon my favorite Psalm.
