Lyrics

I can on God implicitly rely,
who stands in all events my person by.
It’s God whose love into my prison breaks,
who leads me out and makes my soul relax.

Though I may go through nights of dark despair
and reach the very depth of thoughts that scare,
not even then will I give in to fear
for I am still convinced my God is near.

With all my heart I put my trust in God,
who wills for all creation what is good.
Wherever I may go, God too will come,
whose loving presence makes me feel at home.

Author / Composer Comments

• Author Fred Kaan, from his book The Only Earth We Know (Stainer & Bell / Hope Publishing Co., 1999, page 107): “As one who has lived in an urban context almost all his life, I tried my hand at writing a paraphrase of Psalm 23 avoiding its original rural imagry. Shepherds and flocks are pretty remote images for millions of people!”
