THE LAMB’S PSALM

My Shepherd,

When the morning mist hangs low in the valley

you take the lead

and see my need.

At the stream you find a shallow

on the brink

for me to drink.

You surround me with alpacas

to make it safe.

I’m but a waif!

You bandage my hoof when I cannot move.

You dress my cut in your first-aid hut.

When fire sweeps across the slopes

you cause the rain

—- a sweet refrain.

Surely you will not abandon me

when I spring up upon your knee.

Should I be picked for sacrifice

it all will be a worthwhile price,

for you restore

and promise more,

my Faithful Friend ’til journey’s end.
