Meadow, valley, table

            God is my shepherd;
            I am not in want…
                           â€”Psalm 23.1

Savor the still pastures, the deep, green waters,
trust and remember them;
stay faithful to the harmonious path
and the One who leads you on it,
stay with it,
for it leads directly
to the valley of the shadow of death,
the seed buried, the life laid down,
the heart’s Golgotha,
the cup poured out, overflowing
with goodness and mercy
all the days of your life.
The meadow, the valley, the table:
if you hear the voice beneath the silence
this is where it leads you,
all the days of your life.
