Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Jehovah, my kind shepherd is

Jehovah, my kind shepherd is

Author: John Barnard
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1. Jehovah my kind shepherd is,
He doth my wants supply;
2. In pastures green, by waters still,
He makes me down to lie.
3. My soul, so prone to go astray,
He mildly doth reclaim;
And leads me on in righteous paths,
For the honor of his name.

4. Though through death's shady vale I walk,
No evil will I fear;
Thy rod directs, and staff defends,
For thou art with me there.
5. My table thou hast richly spread,
In presence of my foes;
Thou dost my head with oil anoint,
My cup it overflows.

6. Goodness, and mercy, surely shall
Attend me all my days;
My fixed abode forever, Lord,
Shall be thy house of praise.
