426. The Lord My Shepherd Is

1 The Lord my Shepherd is,
I shall be well supplied.
Since He is mine and I am His,
What can I want beside?

2 He leads me to the place
Where heav'nly pasture grows,
Where living waters gently pass,
And full salvation flows.

3 If e’er I go astray,
He doth my soul reclaim,
And guides me in His own right way,
For His most holy name.

4 While He affords His aid,
I cannot yield to fear;
Though I should walk through death’s dark shade,
My Shepherd’s with me there.

5 Amid surrounding foes
Thou dost my table spread;
My cup with blessing overflows,
And joy exalts my head.

6 The bounties of Thy love
Shall crown my following days,
Nor from Thy house will I remove
Nor cease to speak Thy praise.

Amen.
