Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

717. My Shepherd

1 Jesus is my Shepherd, nothing shall I need;
In the green, sweet pastures He doth ever lead,
And beside the waters, crystal, pure, and still,
Yea, to overflowing He my cup doth fill.

Refrain:
Jesus is my Shepherd, He supplies my needs,
In the shining pathway, tenderly He leads;
He protects and shelters in His peaceful fold,
From the many dangers, from the storm and cold.

2 He doth always lead me in the narrow way,
And my soul restoreth if I go astray;
Though through death’s dark valley I must shortly go,
In His blessed presence I will fear no foe. [Refrain]

3 He will ever bless me, all my needs supply;
Yea, with richest favors He will satisfy;
In a shining mansion, fitted up for me,
I will live with Jesus through eternity. [Refrain]
