Shepherd Of My Soul
from All Things New by Rivers & Robots

Lord of the mountains and sea
You are treading a path set for me
God of the seasons and sky
You have always been holding my life

And Lord, You are the shepherd of my soul
So I lay down my plans, I give up my rights
And let You take control of this surrendered life

So I put my trust in the one
Who created the stars and the sun
You are eternally kind
Always faithful and endlessly wise

You comfort, You sustain
In shaking You remain
Unmoved and unafraid
Forever and always
You lead me by still waters
Lead me through the valleys
Lead me in Your wisdom
Shepherd of my soul

Through valleys of shadow and death I am not afraid
By my [God’s] breath every star in the sky was made
And who can I fear when You’re standing right here by my side?
Always leading, protecting and guarding my left and my right

[God] You make all things new
Great God of creation
[God] You will always be my rock and salvation

What imagery stands out to you? God we celebrate and hold dear that You are “eternally kind, always faithful and endlessly wise.”

For further reflection, today we’re reading John 12:1-11 in our community lenten reader.
