Jesus Paid the Highest Price

Poor and lowly as I am
Helpless as a wand’ring lamb.
All but lost without a fold,
My waywardness has left me cold.
As Shadows fall a voice draws near.
It stirs my heart, expells my fear.
‘Tis Jesus Christ, the shepherd King,
Come to pay the price for me.
 
Bleeding Shepherd sacrificed;
Thou hast paid too high a price
To reach and save the weak and small
And wrap Your arms around them all.
When love laid down upon the cross,
Hope sprang up and called out to us,
“Sin’s great debt now satisfied,
Jesus paid the highest price.”
 
O’er mountains high and valleys low,
Your voice has led me through them all.
With ev’ry mile my hunger grows
To be with You before Your throne,
Where I will see You face to face.
My scars and sorrows then erased,
All because my shepherd King
Came to pay the price for me
 
Bleeding Shepherd sacrificed;
Thou hast paid too high a price
To reach and save the weak and small
And wrap Your arms around them all.
When love laid down upon the cross,
Hope sprang up and called out to us,
“Sin’s great debt now satisfied,
Jesus paid the highest price.”
 
-David Edwards & Regi Stone

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd,
I shall not want.
The Lord is my shepherd,
I shall not want.
The Lord is my shepherd,
I shall not want.
.
He maketh me,
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures.
He leadeth me,
He leadeth me beside the still, still waters.
He restoreth my soul.
He leadeth me,
He leadeth me in the paths of righteous for his name sale.
.
Yea though I walk,
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 comfort me.
.
Thou preparest a table for me,
In the presence of my enemies.
Thou anointest my head with oil,
My cup, my cup runneth over.
Thou preparest a table for me.
In the presence of my enemies.
Thou anointest my head with oil.
My cup, 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.
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord.
The Lord is my shepherd,
The Lord is my shepherd.
The Lord is my shepherd
I shall not want.
The Lord is my shepherd,
Forever, Amen.
.
-Psalm 23, music by Paul Basler.
