“We sing a song in my class,” Corin told his babysitter (who then told me). “Do you want to hear it?”
They walk through the valley of death,
But they’re with the shepherd!
It’s scary, but they’re not scared,
Cos’ they’re with the shepherd!
We do not sing this song in his class.
Every Sunday, we do read a picture book of Psalm 23. Thrice now, we have done a Godly Play style story on the Good Shepherd. Nick Butterworth’s story of the Lost Sheep has made an appearance.
But this song?
This song is Corin’s personal response to the story. This is Corin taking the line, “I will fear no evil, for you are with me” and comprehending it.
