My Shepherd Will Defend Me

Though life’s rocky rugged road would upend me
‘Midst its dangers My Shepherd will defend me
He has sought me when I strayed
So I will not be afraid
I put my trust in Him

This world’s predators would hope to befriend me
But from their wiles My Shepherd will defend me
He will fight on my behalf
With His mighty rod and staff
I put my trust in Him

Bridge
He will lead me to the paths  where I’ll flourish
He will see that  I am fed and I am nourished
Till I’ve finally understood
He is wise and He is good
I put my trust in Him

When I fall and I am broken he will mend me
When I’m helpless my shepherd will defend me
He will lift and carry me
To a place prepared for me
I put my trust in Him

Through the valley of the shadowlands He’ll tend me
From its snares and cares My shepherd will defend me
He will keep me to the end
So on Him I will depend
I put my trust in Him
I put my trust in Him
I put my trust in Him
