1 The God of love my Shepherd is,
My gracious, constant guide;
I shall not want for I am His;
In all supplied.
2 In His green pastures do I feed,
And there lie down at will;
He leads me in my thirsty need
By waters still.
3 His tenderness restores my soul,
When sick and faint I roam;
Shows the right path and makes me whole,
Bearing me home.
4 Yea! the dark valley when I tread,
No evil will I fear;
Thy rod and staff dispel my dread;
I feel Thee near.
5 Thou spread'st my table 'mid my foes;
The oil of grace is mine;
My cup with mercy overflows,
And love divine.
6 Goodness and mercy all my days
My constant song shall be,
Till heavenly anthems fill with praise
