Lead Me, My Shepherd

Lead me, my shepherd, in paths that you show.
Not by my own will, but yours, may I go.
By the still waters of baptism’s grace
dear God, renew me, and show me your face.
God, may your rod and your staff be my guide.
Even in death’s shadow walk by my side.
Help me to listen, to trust and obey,
going wherever you show me the way.
God, in the face of my fears you provide,
bidding me dine with my foes at my side.
Lead me, wherever my path in life goes,
trusting your mercy, that grace overflows.
Dearest companion of blessing and weal,
you who provide and forgive me and heal,
still now, I listen and wait for what’s true:
your voice that leads me to life, and to you.
