P.XXIII. My Shepherd will supply my need

1 My Shepherd will supply my need,
Jehovah is is name;
In pastures fresh he makes me feed,
Beside the living stream.

2 He brings my wand'ring spirit back
When I forsake his ways,
And leads me for his mercy's sake,
In paths of truth and grace.

3 When I walk through the shades of death,
Thy presence is my stay;
One word of thy supporting breath
Drives all my fears away.

4 Thy hand in sight of all my foes
Doth still my table spread;
My cup with blessings overflows,
Thine oil anoints my head.

5 The sure provisions of my God
Attend me all my days;
O may thy house be mine abode,
And all my work be praise!

6 There would I find a settled rest,
(While others go and come)
No more a stranger or a guest,
But like a child at home.
