| The Lord is my Shepherd, His care is my crown, |
In pastures of plenty He layeth me down,
My soul He restoreth when troubles are nigh,
Beside the still waters, contented am I.
| The Lord is my Shepherd, His peace is my fill, |
In seasons of sorrow I trust in Him still,
How bright is the promise my hope rests upon,
Beyond death’s dark shadow the glory shines on.
| The Lord is my Shepherd, His rod and His staff |
Will comfort and guide me each step of the path,
In times of affliction I fear not the foe,
My cup runneth over, how sweet is the flow.
| The Lord is my Shepherd, wherever I roam,|
His goodness and mercy shall follow me home;
And when all my trials and labours are o’er,
I’ll dwell in the house of my Lord evermore.
| Come trust in my Shepherd and know Him to be |
Your Friend and Companion o’er life’s stormy sea,
Who’ll keep you and guide you the pathway before
Safe home to His heavenly fold evermore.
