The Valley

The Valley
A Meditation on Psalm 23 

As I walk through this valley
Death is casting its shadow on me
In the distance I can see my Shepherd
His staff and rod remind me 
This pain is temporary
But I will not fear death's shadow
Its been defeated by The King

For, While I'm weak 
The strength of My Shepherd rescued me
While I am stained and tainted
I've been Propitiated 
Was blind but now I clearly see
I will rejoice in this valley
In the presence of my enemies 
My Shepherd will never forsake me
And soon I'll be with Him 
Whom I desperately seek

Though my soul mirrors this desolate valley
Dry and thirsty for redemption's taste
My Shepherd will lead me through paths of righteousness
All for the sake of His glorious name
But I will not fear desolation
Its been defeated by The King

For, While I'm weak 
The strength of My Shepherd rescued me
While I am stained and tainted
I've been Propitiated 
Was blind but now I clearly see
I will rejoice in this valley
In the presence of my enemies 
My Shepherd will never forsake me
And soon I'll be with Him 
Whom I desperately seek

When my Shepherd returns
He will renew it all
Transform this valley into green pastures
My cup will overflow
I shall not want 
For what I've wanted will finally come
Beside still waters 
I'll rest forever in my Shepherd's home

I'll feast at a table with my Shepherd and King
