The mercy of the Lord is with me now
And all of life’s allotment of my days.
He promised me in love a sacred vow
That He will lead me Home where angels praise.
The goodness of my Shepherd follows near
Reminding me of all that lies in store.
The dwelling of the Lord is bright and clear
And in His grace I’ll live forever more.
Let all the world assault my mortal flesh,
Lay waste to all I have with wind or fire.
I’m grateful for His love each day afresh;
His Presence is now all that I desire.
It matters not how difficult this life,
The Lord’s eternal house is worth the strife.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
Psalm 23:6 KJV
