He Restoreth My Soul
Gently guiding, prompting, leading
this wandering sheep back into the fold;
By the streams of living waters,
in the pathways that are old;
Resting, restoring, renewing
for my spirit that once was so dry;
Graceful showers of blessing falling,
Refreshing from the Lord on High.
From strength to strength, my Lord is leading,
preparing my heart and showing the way;
From my shadows into His presence,
His Word shines out as clear as day;
From weak and faltering footsteps,
to steadfast assurance as I pray;
His Spirit is there to remind me,
His strength is sufficient for today.
From faith to faith, Jesus is leading
in the paths of righteousness, I see;
There’s a new purpose and fulfillment,
learning the plans that He has for me;
Peace and contentment flood my soul,
from the goodness that He has in store;
God’s mercies and lovingkindnesses
will be my song forevermore.

Psalms 23:1-3 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
I thought Through Darkened Skies was the first poem I had written in nine or ten years, but I found this in the Notes on my phone tonight – from almost five years ago. I hope it is a blessing to you.
