We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

My Shepherd Is the Lord

My Shepherd is the Lord Most High, And all my wants shall be supplied

Published in 38 hymnals

Representative Text

1 My Shepherd is the Lord most high,
And all my wants shall be supplied;
In pastures green He makes me lie,
And leads by streams which gently glide.

2 He in His mercy doth restore
My soul, when sinking in distress;
For His name's sake He evermore
Leads me in paths of righteousness.

3 Yea, though I walk through death's dark vale,
Even there no evil will I fear;
Because Thy presence shall not fail,
Thy rod and staff my soul shall cheer.

4 For me a table Thou hast spread,
Prepared before the face of foes;
With oil Thou dost anoint my head;
My cup is filled and overflows.

5 Goodness and mercy shall not cease
Through all my days to follow me;
And in God's house my dwelling place
With Him forever more shall be.
