The Shepherd of My Life

The Shepherd of My Life



The Lord is my Shepherd.


How could I live otherwise?


In daily life His voice is heard.


He’s there for all our “hi’s” and “byes.”


 


The Lord is my Shepherd.


How could I live otherwise?


As young parents, we teach His Word


In busy lives of our “small fries.”


 


The Lord is my Shepherd.


How could I live otherwise?


Teens and our parents, too, we’ve heard,


Make us the “sandwich” tried for size.


 


The Lord is my Shepherd.


How could I live otherwise?


Retirement is golden we’ve heard.


Could riches, good health be the prize?


 


The Lord is my Shepherd.


How could I live otherwise?


Life has passed by us, youth’s “sweet bird,”


Now waiting God’s call to LIFE “in the skies.”
