1 – My shepherd is the living Lord:
now shall my needs be well supplied;
his loving care and holy word
will be my safety and my guide.
2 – In pastures where salvation grows
he makes me feed, he gives me rest;
there living water gently flows,
and food is given, divinely blest.
3 – Though I walk through the gloomy vale
where death and all its terrors are,
my heart and hope shall never fail:
my shepherd holds me in his care.
4 – Amid the darkness and the deeps,
God is my comfort, God my stay;
his staff supports my feeble steps,
his rod directs my doubtfilled way.
5 – Surely the mercies of the Lord
attend his household all their days;
there will I dwell, to hear his word,
to seek his face, to sing his praise.
1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
