Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

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

Jesus Is My Shepherd

Representative Text

1 Jesus is my Shepherd, so kind and true,
Down where the living waters flow;
He calls for His own, He keepeth the “few,”
Where pastures of green ever grow.

Refrain:
Jesus is my Shepherd, He leadeth me,
Down where the living waters flow;
His smiles I enjoy, His face I do see,
His blood makes me whiter than snow.

2 Jesus is my Shepherd, I’m in His fold,
Down where the living waters flow;
He keeps me each day from danger and cold,
I’ll follow where’er He may go. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is my Shepherd, He is the door,
He watcheth over everyone;
He cares for the weak, He healeth the sore,
He bringeth the wanderer home. [Refrain]

4 Jesus is my Shepherd, His voice I hear,
And when He calleth I obey;
He leads me with joy, though danger be near,
For He is the life and the way. [Refrain]
