This song is about friendship and Psalm 23. It is a beautiful thing how we were made for community and how our relationships are one of the primary means of our sanctification. These are the places where we see both our sin and God’s mercy, and these are the places where we learn to extend grace and service to others. Because of the fall, however, we find that even our greatest love here will fail us, and our greatest work is still filthy rags by God’s standards. In great contrast, we find our righteousness, perfect rest, and all we need in Jesus.
A few of my favorite lyrics from the song:
Walk with me empty, walk with me strong
The hush of our voices, when the day seems so long
It is like a balm, it is like a jewel
It unravels all I thought I knew
Will you lead me, beside the still waters
Where the oil, it runs over, and my cup overflows
You restore my soul
"The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake."
