Sunday, the 25th, Rev. Bodge preached on the 23rd psalm with many insights and versions. Here is one version that was very original.
The Lord is my Pace-setter, I shall not rush;
He makes me stop and rest for quiet intervals.
He provides me with images of stillness, which restore my serenity;
He leads me in the ways of efficiency through calmness of mind,
And his guidance is peace.
Even thought I have a great many things to accomplish each day,
I will not fret, for His presence is here;
His timelessness, His all importance, will keep me in balance.
He prepares refreshment and renewal in the midst of my activity
By annointing my mind with His oils of tranquility;
My cup of joyous energy overflows.
Surely harmony and effectiveness shall be the fruits of my hours,
For I shall walk in the pace of my Lord, and dwell in his house for ever.
