1 By waters cool and sweet,
From living fountains fed,
My Shepherd leads my eager feet,
To fresher meads ahead.

2 The tender verdure springs
And blossoms where we stray;
And at each step my glad heart sings,
So sweet I find the way.

3 The heat of burning noons
Is tempered to my need;
And all His wisely given boons
Are mine before I plead.

4 More of His love and care
I learn from day to day,
And more of His rich bounty share,
As by His side I stay.

5 Dear Shepherd, if from Thee
My erring feet should rove,
O chide me kindly, tenderly,
And bring me back in love.
