Representative Text

1 My shepherd is the Lord,
Who rules the earth and skies;
He leads me thro’ His pastures green,
And all my wants supplies.

2 Beside the shaded brook
I lay me down and rest,
And in Jehovah’s watchful care
I am supremely blest.

3 No gloomy shade of death
Or valley dark I fear;
The Shepherd’s rod and staff I see,
And feel protection near.

4 To heed His loving voice
I never would refuse:
And where my living steps shall stray
I leave to Him to choose.

5 My heart shall be as calm
As any summer’s day;
I follow where He kindly leads,
And love His chosen way.
