psalm 23: filled to overflowing

though i am pursued by
my desires,
i lack for nothing.

you shepherd me
past all want;
you take me through lush pastures,
you bathe me in still waters
and replenish my spirit.

you guide me into
wide open vistas and
lead me through valleys
of deepest darkness;
my steps fall sure
and true.

you set my life before me
as a sumptuous banquet;
i feast on your goodness,
and am filled to overflowing.

even when hunger grips
my soul,
i know you are near;
coaxing me back,
drawing me close,
beckoning me
home.
