Your Sunday Hymn: Shelter Me Oh God

A comfort hymn for those experiencing troubled times.

Lyrics:

Shepherd me, O God, beyond my wants,
D/B     C           D          Em   Am G/E  A
beyond my fears, from death into life.


1.

Em        Am           G/E             A
God is my shepherd, so nothing I shall want,
Em          Am         G/E              A
I rest in the meadows of faithfulness and love,
C           Am    Bm     D   Em     Am  G/E  A
I walk by the quiet waters of peace.

2.

Em         Am           G/E           A
Gently you raise me and heal my weary soul,
Em          Am         G/E               A
you lead me by pathways of righteousness and truth,
C            Am       Bm    D       Em     Am  G/E  A
my spirit shall sing the music of your Name.

3.

Em              Am         G/E       A
Though I should wander the valley of death,
Em      Am        G/E           A
I fear no evil, for you are at my side,
C            Am        Bm      D      Em   Am  G/E  A
your rod and your staff, my comfort and my hope.

Bridge:
D G  C                 D       C   D
You have set me a banquet of love
G              C      Am
in the face of hatred,
F#             B
crowning me with love beyond my pow’r to hold.
(Chorus)

5.
Em          Am           G/E          A
Surely your kindness and mercy follow me
C       D          A
all the days of my life;
C                   Bm          Am     D   Em   Am  G/E  A
I will dwell in the house of my God forevermore.
