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.

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.

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]
