My Master is Good

My Master is good,
I shall not want (Psalm 23:1)
He quenches my deepest thirsts (John 6:35)
He satisfies my deepest longings (Psalm 63:5)
My soul finds rest in Him alone (Psalm 62)
He is my portion (Psalm 73:26)
My Master is good,
I shall not be anxious (Phil. 4:6)
For He supplies my every need (Phil. 4:19)
His timing is perfect (Isaiah 46:11)
He gives me peace that surpasses all understanding (Phil. 4:7)
His love is better than life (Psalm 63:3)
My Master is good,
He has not left me alone (John 14:26)
For His Spirit indwells me (Romans 8:9)
And applies the power of the Gospel (Romans 8:11)
Despite my stubbornness
My Master is good,
He prepares a table for me (Psalm 23:5)
His Spirit graciously provides me with its fruit (Galatians 5:22-25)
He leads my in paths of righteousness (Psalm 23:3)
And when I wander
He gently draws me back again
My Master is good,
Even in my weakness (Romans 8:26)
His Spirit intercedes for me,
He is working for my ultimate good (Romans 8:28)
My Master is good,
Through life's worst storms
He is an unshakeable fortress (Psalm 62:2)
A refuge for my soul (Psalm 18:2)
A deep calm (Luke 8:24)
Fatherly protection from the blast
My Master is good,
When my soul is downcast (Psalm 42:5)
He restores the joy of His salvation (Psalm 51:12)
And makes my heart glad (Psalm 92:4)
My soul delights in God! (Isaiah 61:10)
My Master is good,
When my restless heart clings to dear idols
He lovingly convicts me
And shows me the infinite worth and treasure that Christ is (2 Corinthians 4:16)
My Master is good,
When the enemy condemns me (Romans 8:33)
And my soul lies in guilt and shame,
He reminds me that the debt was paid (Romans 3:24-25)
And that there is no more condemnation (Romans 8:1)
My Master is good,
When I return to the shackles of sin
He reminds me that Christ has defeated Sin (Romans 6:22)
And I am no longer a slave, But a Son (Ephesians 1:5)
I am united to Christ (Romans 6:5)
I am free (John 8:32)
My Master is good,
When I was blind, He gave me sight (Mark 10:52)
When I was lost, He found me (Luke 15:4)
When I was an outsider
He brought me in (Luke 15:2)
My Master is good,
When I hated Him, (Romans 3:10-18)
He loved me, (Romans 5:8)
When I was His enemy,
He died to reconcile me to the Himself (Romans 5:10)
When I deserved His wrath and punishment (Romans 3:23)
He left His throne and took the sting of God's wrath on the Cross (Romans 3:25)
So that I might know Him
He has loved the loveless
He has given life to the perishing.
My Master is good,
He has died for a sinner (Romans 5:8)
So that I may call Him Master
