1. The Lord's our guide through city streets,
and knows just what we need.
He helps us find a quiet peace -
where we can stop and breathe.

2.  So easily the ceaseless tide
can sweep us all away
The noisy rush of human life
as day blurs into day.

3.  And even through the darkest streets
and alleyways and slums
the gentle Guide forever leads
the orphans to a home.

4.  No matter which side of the tracks
we lay us down to sleep
We are at home for see: we lie
here at our Master's feet!

5.  So stop a while and deeply breathe
Breathe in the peace of God
Like city lungs taste country air
We know that God is good!

Based on Psalm 23
