Surely goodness and mercy
Shall follow you
All the days of your life
And you shall dwell in the house of the Lord
No need to beg for blessings,
If you’re in Jesus’ flock—
His goodness and mercy
Are already hunting you down.
Whether you know it or not,
Good gifts from God are on your heels.
Whether you feel it or not,
His love is in hot pursuit of your soul.
Little lamb, no need to wear yourself out
Chasing after goodness that has already been granted.
No need to worry and strive
For mercy that has already been given.
I bless you not to run faster
In attempt to be favored—
I bless you to slow down enough
To let God’s grace catch you.
