He Leadeth Me



"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." Psalm 23:1-2

He leadeth me. I certainly need someone to lead me.
I am so poor, so blind, so weak, so foolish that, if left
to myself, I would fatally err. Lord, never leave me nor
forsake me, lest I be undone. 

My Shepherd leads me gently and wisely. He makes no
mistakes. He knows the way I ought to go. He knows
how much sweet and how much bitter, are best for me.
He understands me fully. Oh, how He mingles mercy
with judgment!

True, He leads me often in a mysterious way. I see
not the end from the beginning. I cannot see afar off.
His footsteps are in the sea; clouds and thick darkness
surround Him. He gives account of none of His matters.
His judgments are a great deep. But He never does
wrong. He leads me in the paths of righteousness.

He leads me always
in prosperity and in adversity;
in joy and in sorrow. If He left me even for an hour I
would be undone. When I sleep, You, Lord, keep vigil
over me. When I awake, I am still with Thee. On the
land and on the sea, I am kept by Thy mighty power.

He leadeth me
and I will follow Him. I will put my hand
in His
and go wherever His prudence shall direct.

"Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path..."
Psalm 27:11

 

"From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my
heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher
than I.” Psalm 61:2
(William S. Plumer)
