1. Into the valleys of blessing
My shepherd leads;
Peace is my spirit possessing,
My soul He feeds.
Pastures so green are around me,
Waters of life shall flow;
Fairest of flowers surround me,
Ever I onward go.

My shepherd leads along the way,
Kept by His care I cannot stray;
In tender love, to realms above,
My shepherd leads me home!

2. Into the ways that are weary
My shepherd leads;
Dark tho’ the skies be and dreary,
He knows my needs.
Heavy the load I am bearing,
Love hath my pathway planned;
Trusting, I’m still forward faring,
Led by my shepherd’s hand. [Refrain]

3. Into the land all immortal
My shepherd leads;
Unto the glorious portal
My way He heeds.
Mansions of heavenly splendor
Wait me when I shall come.
Led by my shepherd so tender
Unto my Father’s home. [Refrain]
