Psalm 23 is a beloved scripture passage that has brought comfort to countless individuals through the ages. It speaks of the Lord as our shepherd, guiding us through life’s darkest valleys and leading us to peaceful, still waters. The psalm testifies to God’s unwavering care and protection for His children.

Leanna Crawford’s song ‘Still Waters,’ written with Jonathan Gamble and Justin Mark Richards, captures the heart of Psalm 23. The lyrics start with a powerful piece of advice: “Great Aunt Maurine said at a hundred and three, ‘Write scripture on your heart for when you need it.'” These words highlight the importance of seeding God’s word in our lives.

Great Aunt Maurine said at a hundred and three
Write scripture on your heart for when you need it
Cause anxiety hates Psalm 23
So just say it to yourself ‘til you believe it
And I’m feeling like I’m needing it right now

Leanna Crawford’s performance brings the scripture to life. Her voice and the lyrics together make the message of Psalm 23 even more powerful.

The song’s message is about God’s constant presence and comfort. The lyrics emphasize that even in life’s darkest moments, God is with us, offering His goodness and mercy.

The lyrics encourage us to keep God’s word in our hearts and trust in His guidance. “Lord I believe You can set me at ease, turn this broken piece in me to peace and quiet,” the lyrics say.

Lord I believe You can set me at ease
Turn this broken piece in me to peace and quiet
I know there’s power in Your word
So I’ll say it over and over til my soul’s reminded

Leanna Crawford’s ‘Still Waters’ reminds us that God’s peace is always available. As we listen, let these words bring us the assurance that our Shepherd is with us, leading us beside still waters and restoring our souls.
