A Pocket Psalm

As I walk the razor's edge, His bloodstained feet

are there to cushion mine into retreat

My shepherd does not sleep

As I dangle by a thread, His bloodstained hand

grasps mine, and then I understand

My shepherd does not sleep

As I stumble to the brink, His bloodstained back

becomes my bridge to narrow the wide crack

My shepherd does not sleep

As I walk this rocky path with head bent low

I hear my name and I look up and know

My shepherd does not sleep
