1. Jesus is my Lord and God,
My comforter when I am sad;
Brother, sister, father, mother:
All the love I never had.
2. Jesus is my watchful shepherd,
Teacher, master, mountain guide;
Friend in need, defence in trouble:
He is always at my side.
3. Jesus is my close companion,
Strong support when I’m afraid;
Sword and shield when I’m in danger:
Rescuer when I have strayed.
4. Jesus is my paragon,
My light along the narrow way;
Bread, wine, water; truth, and life:
My inspiration, every day.
1. “My Lord and my God!” Thomas exclaimed (John 20:28; NLT).
Worship Christ as Lord of your life (1 Peter 3:15; NLT)
The Father and I are one (John 10:30; NLT).
I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, [Comforter, Encourager, Counsellor] who will never leave you (John 14:16; NLT).
Jesus replied, “Who is my mother? Who are my brothers? Then he looked around him and said, “Look, these are my mother and brothers. Anyone who does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother” (Mark 3:33-5; NLT).
God is love (1 John 4:16; NIV).
2. I am the good shepherd (John 10:14; NLT).
Since I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash each other’s feet. I have given you an example to follow. Do as I have done to you (John 13:14-15; NLT).
3. The Lord will guide you continually (Isaiah 58:11; NLT).
The Lord is a friend to those who fear him (Psalm 25:14; NLT).
He is your protecting shield and your triumphant sword! (Deuteronomy 33:29; NLT).
I will be glad because he rescues me (Psalm 35:9; NLT).
If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them gets lost, what will he do? Won’t he leave the ninety-nine others in the wilderness and go to search for the one that is lost until he finds it? And when he has found it, he will joyfully carry it home on his shoulders (Luke 15:4-5; NLT).
4. God called you to do good, even if it means suffering, just as Christ suffered for you. He is your example, and you must follow in his steps (1 Peter 2:21; NLT).
I am the light of the world (John 9:5; NLT).
Small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Matthew 7:13-14; NIV).
He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you” (Luke 22:19-20; NIV).
Rivers of living water will flow from his heart (John 7:38; NLT).
I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me (John 14:6; NLT).
Just as you have received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him (Colossians 2:6; CSB).

Amen, Ruth! As my deacon friend used to say, “God is a one stop shop.” In Him we find all we need.
