GREAT FATHER above a SHEPHERD CHIEF
I am His and with Him I want not.
throws out to me a rope and the name
of the rope is love
and He draws me to where the grass is
green and the water is not dangerous,
and I eat and lie down and am satisfied.
Sometimes my heart is very weak and
but He lifts me up again draws me into
a good road.
His name is WONDERFUL .
Sometimes, it may be very soon, it may
be a long long time,
He will draw me into a valley.
It is dark there, but I'll be afraid
for it is between those mountains that
the SHEPHERD CHIEF will meet me
and the hunger that I have in my heart
all through life will be satisfied.
Sometimes he makes the love rope into
but afterwards He gives me a staff to
He spreads a table before me with all
kinds of foods.
He puts His hand upon my head and all
the " tired " is gone.
My cup he fills till it runs over.
What I tell is true. I lie not.
These roads that are "away ahead"
will stay with me
through this life and after;
and afterwards I will go to live in
the Big Teepee
and sit down with the SHEPHERD CHIEF
