He leads me in the paths of righteousness
Along the rugged straight and narrow way.
This is the route of truth and holiness
And where my Shepherd taught me how to pray.
There is just one more place I’d rather be,
Though now He bids me heed each step I take.
He guides me to the place I long to see
My Home on Heaven’s shore for His name sake.
Obedience is needed on this trek
For I am prone to stray and surely fail,
So here I track His marks and hear Him beck;
My Shepherd is the way along this trail.
I follow as He shepherds me along
And walk in faith to where I so belong.
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness
for His name’s sake.
Psalm 23:3 KJV
