Care for me, Lord

Care for me, Lord

as though you were a shepherd,

and I, a sheep of your flock.

Lead me to the comfort

of quite and peace.

Lead me to walk through the world

in your footsteps.

Even when there is sadness and shadow,

I shall not be afraid, or lose hope.

You are with me

in good times and in bad.

Care for me always, Lord,

as though you were a shepherd,

and I, a sheep of your flock.
