“I have no Shepherd, I constantly want. Discontentedly I graze in parched fields; I can find no water in the paths of sinfulness, seeking pleasure. When I walk in the darkness of danger and death, I am afraid; I am all alone. No power or principle gives me comfort. There is no nourishment to strengthen me against my enemies. There is no ointment for my head. My life is empty. Even though God’s goodness and mercy have been available all the days of my life. I shall be banished from the house of the Lord forever.

{Now read Psalms 23 for the comfort provided for those who would follow the Lord, the Great Shepherd.}
