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

795. Jesus Is My Shepherd

1 Jesus is my Shepherd, so kind and true,
Down where the living waters flow;
He calls for His own, He keepeth the “few,”
Where pastures of green ever grow.

Refrain:
Jesus is my Shepherd, He leadeth me,
Down where the living waters flow;
His smiles I enjoy, His face I do see,
His blood makes me whiter than snow.

2 Jesus is my Shepherd, I’m in His fold,
Down where the living waters flow;
He keeps me each day from danger and cold,
I’ll follow where’er He may go. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is my Shepherd, He is the door,
He watcheth over everyone;
He cares for the weak, He healeth the sore,
He bringeth the wanderer home. [Refrain]

4 Jesus is my Shepherd, His voice I hear,
And when He calleth I obey;
He leads me with joy, though danger be near,
For He is the life and the way. [Refrain]
