23rd Psalm in Broad Scots ©

by John Moir
Banchory, Scotland

Wha' is my shepherd weel I ken
The Lord himsel' is he:
He leads me whaur the girse is green
An' burnies quiet that be.

Aft times I fain astray wad gang
An wann'r far awa':
He fin's me oot, he pits me richt
An' brings me hame an' a'.

Tho I pass through the gruesome cleuch
Fin' I ken He is near:
His muckle crook will me defen'
Sae I ha'e nocht to fear.

Ilk comfort whilk a sheep could need
His thoghtfu' care provides:
Tho' wolves an' dogs may prowl aboot
In safety me He hides.

His guidness an' his mercy baith
Nae doot will bide wi' He -
While fallded on the fields o' time
Or o' eternity.
