6798. Thou, Jehovah, Art My Shepherd

1. Thou, Jehovah, art my shepherd,
Therefore I no want shall know;
In green pastures Thou dost lead me,
Leadest where still waters flow;
And, when fainting,
Sweet refreshment doest bestow.

2. For Thy name’s sake Thou dost guide me
In the paths of righteousness;
Though I walk the vale of shadows,
Fears no more my soul oppress;
Thou art with me,
With Thy rod and staff to bless.

3. Thou preparest me a table
In the presence of the foe;
Thou my head with oil anointest,
Yea, my cup doth overflow.
O my Savior,
Having Thee, no want I know.

4. Surely grace and loving-kindness
Shall forever follow me,
Till, my days of life all ended,
Evermore my home shall be,
O Jehovah,
In Thy holy house with Thee.
