“Baa! He’s in EVERY verse”

If, like me, you grew up in a Christian home….ok let me rephrase.

If, like me, you actually like the fact that you grew up in a Christian home,

then you must be familiar with Psalms 23.

Familiar with it for decades, as I have been.

I can recite Psalms 23 in my sleep, in two languages.

But as I heard someone read this song today,

It suddenly dawned on me

That the Shepherd is in every verse


1 The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord

I’ve been a really slow sheep

To not notice He does not sleep

But ‘cos in wahala, he’s in my verse

That beats being a stray, though in First Class.
