IN THE CENTRE OF THE SHEEPFOLD (SONG LYRICS)

flock of sheep group rest

Jesus, in the centre of Your fold
No fear, no dread shall come upon me
For in Your arms You lovingly hold
All my life, and dreams, and destiny

So if I wander, and go astray
And lose sight of Your beautiful face
Lord, may Your voice never fade away
And estrange me from mercy and grace

Chorus
In the centre of the sheepfold, is where my Master lives
Caring, loving, protecting me, with hands, He sweetly gives
And I am never alone, when I’m held close by His side
Lavished in adoring love, a new creation, His bride

Your rod at times may convict my heart
But Your staff is never far behind
Pours out comfort if I fall apart
Together, our hearts forever bind

You may hear me whisper little bleats
Sometimes hopeless cries will overwhelm
But Your power, love, sound mind defeats
Dries my tears, lifts me to heaven’s realm

Oh! In the centre
In the centre
’Tis where I want to stay
Every minute, every hour
Jesus, every moment of every day

Chorus
In the centre of the sheepfold, is where my Master lives
Caring, loving, protecting me, with hands, He sweetly gives
And I am never alone, when I’m held close by His side
Lavished in adoring love, a new creation, His bride

The Beauty of Psalm 23

flock of sheep sheep group
I thank you Lord for memories
This very day, all that it holds
For every welcome tomorrow
For life itself, each breath I take
And all that You’ve given to me
You’ve blessed me with more, so much more
Than I deserve or dare to dream

’Cause when I call, You will answer
You are my heavenly Shepherd
I walk lovingly at Your side
You lay me down in pastures green
Tiny patch to broadest meadow
Beside still waters midst the storm
Dark turmoil turned to crystal stream

And Your love for me delivers
My soul is wonderfully restored
From the depths of deepest despair
You lead where no one else can go
Pure righteousness, it permeates
Peace in sight of Your rod and staff
No fear of the enemy’s scheme

My unchanging One, whom I love
You lay tables of sweet plenty
Anoint my head with precious oil
I watch, it overflows others
Immersed in goodness and mercy
Lead me forth to eternal home
Forever lost in Your eyes’ gleam

I thank you Lord for memories
This very day and all that it holds
For every welcome tomorrow
For life itself, each breath I take
And all that You’ve given to me
You’ve blessed me with more, so much more
Than I deserve or dare to dream

Psalm 23
1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
4 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.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 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.
