When I'm Walking the Streets (Psalm 23)
1) Since the Lord is My Shepherd I rest in His Grace,
He gives me His peace as I go place to
2) As I walk through this life
where none seem to care,
He leads me to pastures and His love
Through His love and His peace I enter
Where the truth of His Word washes like
3) Through His sleep and His
peace I wake up at length,
And by the food of His Word I regain
all my strength.
4) When I walk thru the 'hood I
know You are in me,
In the darkest night You are there for
all to see.
I am guided in all my steps by the Word
Through answered prayer I'm given peace
5) Everyday You provide mercies
afresh from the windows of Heaven,
All those who trouble me, and despise
You see the blessings I'm given.
Morning by Morning You douse me afresh
with your Spirit,
Even in my fleshly wants You have
provided all that really matters.
Eternal life in You.
6) Your most faithful love
endlessly pursues me,
It chases me down until I can see.
All of my days are nothing without you.
Lord Your pursuit was worth every
You are my shelter and my refuge.
Not a moment was lost, not a second
wasted each day,
For I have been chastened, and You have
provided the way.
I will rest in your Grace, and live as
a Captive of your Presence.
The above rewriting of the 23rd Psalm came about when my Mum asked me to write a version of the 23rd Psalm based on my tough times of living on the streets. (I currently live on the couch of a Brother in Christ). Right now while not dealing with my multiple headed job search, I am doing the Work God prepared for me to do in advance as an Ambassador for the Kingdom of Heaven. I hope that this verse has been of blessing to you.
