The Lord is my shepherd

Death is inevitable and a mystery.

Today I attended a funeral service of one of our parishioners.  I was touched by the words spoken by the son and the pastor. One of the songs sang was: The Lord is My Shepherd (And I Want to Follow).

The Lord is My Shepherd (And I Want to Follow)


Verse 1

The Lord is my Shepherd, and I want to follow,
wherever he leads me, wherever he goes.
Over the mountains, the waters and by-ways,
valleys and highways he’s waiting for me.

Refrain

I want to go to meet him there, to lay myself down in his love.
The Lord is my shepherd, and I want to follow,
wherever he leads me, wherever he goes.

Verse 2

And while on the journey to where we are going,
he promised to be there to help us along.
And over the mountains we’ll walk on together,
to know all the wonders he’s given to me

Refrain

I looked up for the lyrics, music and vocals. Below are  links:

One thought on “The Lord is my shepherd

  1. Just beautiful, Edgar, and the images in this song and Psalm are so very comforting to me. I love that He goes with us even when we can exactly feel it.
