1. The Lord’s my Shepherd, I’ll not want; He makes me down to lie In pastures green; He leadeth me The quiet waters by.
2. My soul He doth restore again; And me to walk doth make Within the paths of righteousness, E'en for His own name's sake.
3. Yea, tho’ I walk thru’ death’s dark vale, Yet will I fear no ill; For Thou art with me, and Thy rod And staff me comfort still.
4. My table Thou hast furnished In presence of my foes; My head Thou dost with oil anoint, And my cup overflows.
5. Goodness and mercy all my life Shall surely follow me; And in God’s house forevermore My dwelling place shall be.
