Lyrics and chords

6. May your blessing be upon them (Psalm 23)

Initially this song was written for my daughter Sarah, who was working at the time, in India.

She was only 18 years old. I didn’t know quite what to pray, so in my mind I would take her for an’ imaginary’ walk through Psalm 23.

Why not as you listen to this song, pray for someone you’re concerned about?

3 Am G

May your blessing be upon them

Am

Be their shepherd be their guide

C Am

Let your shining greatness lead them,

E

To the comfort of your side,

Am G

By the still and crystal waters

Am

Let their bodies be made whole

Dm

As you lead them to green pastures,

Am G Am

be refreshment to their souls

Dm Am Dm F G Am

I offer them to you, I offer them I offer them to you

Dm x2 E x2 Amx2

G

May you lead them in your truth,

Am

And in ways of holiness,

C Am

In the valley of the shadows,

E

Remove their fearfulness

Am G

Though evil dances round them,

Am

And death opens ugly jaws

Dm

Raise your rod and staff to comfort them,

Am G Am

And make them feel secure

G

Prepare a feast before them,

Am

In their battle in their toil

C Am

Anoint them with your healing ,

E

Pour over holy oil.

Am G

And let their cup of gladness

Am

Like a torrent overflow,

Dm

May your graciousness and mercy,

Am G Am

Follow them where'er they go. (Dm x2 E x2 Am x2)
