You Lift My Head

You are my shield, Lord;
you are my glory.
You lift my head,
as a nurse lifts the patient's head for a drink,
as a father lifts the chin of a tearful child,
as a lover's expected kiss draws the head upward.

You hear me when I call;
you actually listen, and understand.

You give me sleep,
a respite from my troubles.

I will not be afraid,
no matter how alone I may feel,
for you are with me.

You are my shield,
and my very great reward.

(based on Psalm 3:3-6 and Genesis 15:1)
