O Shepherd, Savior, LORD and King,
Spirit Holy who makes me sing
Words I barely understand,
But are surely by your hand.
Reign in me and rule my heart
In each new day your love impart
To change, reform and make me new
Til all my hopes become like You.
“Be at peace, my little child,
Though the storms be rough and wild
I am with you, peace be still
All in order, and in My Will.”
You understand my anxious mind
The way to peace, O help me find.
Though tears will often blur my way
You have promised you’d always stay.
Hold me close when I feel lost
So much pressure, life so tossed
I’m often weak and tired with sin
How can you bear to love me again?
“That’s why I came, for ones like you
Taking your burden and making you new
Rest in my cleansing, my blood covers you
No condemnation, my love ever new.”
