1 Come with us adown the pleasant pastures
Where the flow’rs are blooming all the way;
Straight and smooth the path is made before us,
And our faith grows stronger day by day.

Come and follow where the Master trod,
Every need in him s understood;
We are walking daily with the living God;
Come with us and we will do thee good.

2 Hear the singing of the tranquil waters,
Where the weary drink and thirst no more;
How his rod and staff support and hearten,
And his pow’r and grace our souls restore. [Refrain]

3 Even in the valley of the shadow,
We can never know a doubt or fear;
For his goodness shall endure forever,
And his constant presence is our cheer. [Refrain]

4 Lo, with joy our cup is overflowing,
Come and see, oh wand’ring brother, come;
For his peace is past all understanding,
And our final refuge is at home. [Refrain]
