Your hand, in sight of all my foes, Does still my table spread; My cup with blessings overflows, Your oil anoints my head. 3 The sure provisions of my God Attend me all my days; O may your house be my abode, And all my work be praise. There would I find a settled rest, While others go and come; No more a stranger, or a guest, But like a child at home. Amen. Scripture: Psalm 23 Tune Title: RESIGNATION
