You Are My Shepherd

Wanderlino Arruda

You are my shepherd:
I have all I need.
In You, I rest,
In you, I work,
In You, I rejoice.

In the pastures of the Lord,
the grass is emerald green,
the waters are at rest,
they refresh my soul.

You’re my guide,
on the trail of justice,
in love, in faith,
and in every human effort each day.
Even though I walk in the shadow
of the valley of death,
because of You, Lord,
I fear nothing.
