PSALM 23: A MODERN READING

Will Caldwell

 

The Lord is as my lighthouse;

And I shall not lose my course.

He shows me the deep channel;

And guides me into the safe harbor

Where repairs are made to my hull.

The Lord does this;

It befits His name.

 

Though I sail past the horizon,

I fear no storm – I remember Your goodness.

The memory of You, Your guidance – I keep them close.

 

When I return to Your shores, there is the clear beacon,

A sure light spread before me:

Illumination to grace my path.

Only for Your brilliance will I look

All the days of my life.

And as long as I may sail,

I shall return to this alcove
