Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

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]
