His dogs



Goodness and mercy His dogs,
Hounding us down where we pasture,
Steering us out of each bog,
Rescuing us from disaster.

Inspired by Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.


Seek the pleasure who is God,
In His refuge David stood,
Other pleasures just a fraud,
Apart from Him there is no good.

Counsel set at his right hand,
Whole his being there secure.
God’s right hand we understand,
Pleasures there forevermore.

(inspired by Psalm 16)
