My Shepherd Will Supply My Need

My shepherd will supply my need;
Jehovah is His name.
In pastures fresh He makes me feed,
beside the living stream.

He brings my wandering spirit back
when I forsake His ways,
and leads me, for His mercy’s sake,
in paths of truth and grace.

When I walk through the shades of death
Thy presence is my stay;
one word of Thy supporting breath
drives all my fears away.

Thy hand, in sight of all my foes,
does still my table spread;
my cup with blessings overflows;
Thy oil anoints my head.

The sure provisions of my God
attend me all my days;
O may Thy house be my abode,
and all my work be praise.

There would I find a settled rest,
while others go and come;
no more a stranger, or a guest,
but like a child at home.


Sometimes you find something you just have to share. – TjL

One thought on “My Shepherd Will Supply My Need

  1. I’m actually commenting on a previous post, on Heb. 10:24. I’m a professor teaching theology at a Christian university in Edmonton, Alberta. Most of our students (the vast majority, in fact) are compliant with our COVID masking and vaccination mandates. I do have one student who protests, and who attends a church that was shut down because of its refusal to comply. I don’t know where you are on this (as an Anglican we shut down our churches BEFORE there was a government mandate). In a paper he used Heb. 10:25 to justify civil disobedience. I found it odd that he neglected that the context for Heb 10:25 is Heb 10:24. One of the good deeds his church might provoke is a civic obedience that supports the good of the whole community. Alas, the refusal of this particular church convinces non-church people that Christianity puts its own good before those it purportedly serves.

    Anyway: love your Mac stuff (and what I’ve seen of your church stuff too)!
