On Saturday I attended the funeral of ,Pastor Freudenburg.  It was a celebration of his life but more importantly we were reminded of the One who gave us life.  The service was beautiful, in fact, I felt as though I caught a glimpse of heaven.  The music and singing were magnificent.

I would like to share with you, Shepherd Me O God, by Marty Haugen.


Shepherd me, O God,

beyond my wants,

beyond my fears,

from death into life.

1. God is my shepherd,

so nothing shall I want,

I rest in the meadows

of faithfulness and love,

I walk by the quiet waters of peace.

2. Gently you raise me

and heal my weary soul,

you lead me by pathways

of righteousness and truth,

my spirit shall sing

the music of your Name.

3. Though I should wander

the valley of death,

I fear no evil,

for you are at my side,

your rod and your staff,

my comfort and my hope.

4. You have set me a banquet of love

in the face of hatred,

crowning me with love

beyond my pow’r to hold.

5. Surely your kindness and mercy

follow me all the days of my life;

I will dwell in the house of my God
