SAILORS 23RD PSALM
The Lord is my Pilot, I shall not drift,
He lighteth me across the darkest waters:
In deepest channels – He steereth me. He keepeth my log.
He guardeth me by-The Star of Holiness, for His name’s sake.
Yea tho’ I sail midst the thunder’s and tempests of life;
I will fear no danger, for thou art with me.
Thy love and Thy care, they shelter me.
Thou preparest a harbour ahead, in the haven of Eternity.
Thou anointest the waves with oil, my boat rideth calmly.
Surely, sunlight and starlight shall favour me,On all the voyages I take.
And I will rest in the port of my God forever, Amen.
The TV is my Shepherd
The TV is my Shepherd
My spiritual life shall want much
It makes me sit down and do nothing for Christ
It demandeth my spare time
It restoreth my desire for the things of this world
It keepeth me from studying the truth in God’s word
It leadeth me in the paths of failure to attend a place of worship
Yea, though I live to be a 70, I will still pay the licence
My telly is with me, its sounds and vision they comfort me
It prepares a programme for me; even in the presence mine visitors the volume shall be full
Surely, comedy and commercials shall follow me all the days of my life
And I will dwell in spiritual poverty for ever and ever.
THE 23RD PSALM FOR COMPUTER USERS
The Lord is my programmer, I shall not crash.
He installed His software on the hard disk of my heart;
All of His commands are user – friendly.
His directory moves me to the right choices for His name’s sake.
Even though I scroll through the problems of life,I will fear no bugs, for you are my backup;Your password protects me;
You prepare a menu before me in the presence of my enemies;
Your help is only a key away.
Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life,
And my file will be merged with His and saved forever.
William R. Cox
Psalm 23 for busy people
The Lord is my Pace-setter, I shall not rush,
He makes me stop and rest for quiet intervals,
He provides me with images of stillness,
which restore my serenity.
He leads me in ways of efficiency, through
calmness of mind; and His guidance is peace.
Even though I have a great many things to accomplish
each day, I will not fret, for His presnece is here.
His timelessness, His all-importance
will keep me in balance.
He prepares refreshment and renewal in the midst of my activity,
by anointing my mindwith His oils of tranquility.
My cup of joyous energy overflows,
surely harmony and effectiveness
shall be the fruits of my hours,
For I shall walk at the pace of my Lord.
