Representative Text

1 O sweet is the voice of my Shepherd,
Who leadeth me day by day,
Who covers my life with his mercy,
And lovingly guides my way.

He feedeth his flock at the noontide,
Where fountains are murmuring low,
He feedeth his flock by the lilies,
In beautiful vales that grow.

2 When far from my Shepherd I wandered,
Alone on the mountain cold,
He carried me home from the darkness
To rest in his own dear fold. [Refrain]

3 And tho’ I may walk thro’ the shadow,
No evil can harm me there;
His rod and his staff are my comfort,
He maketh my soul his care. [Refrain]

4 O sweet is the voice of my Shepherd,
No other so kind as he:
The wonderful, wonderful Shepherd,
Who laid down his life for me! [Refrain]
