During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

We will walk through the valley

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. By still waters he leadeth

Tune: [The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want] (Campbell)
Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want;
By still waters He leadeth His sheep;
Tho' the enemy gather and foes may oppress,
Jesus watches while His little ones sleep.

Refrain:
We will walk thru the valley,
We will walk in peace;
We will walk thru the valley with Jesus alone;
On His rod and His staff the valley of death,
We will walk thru the valley in peace.

2 He maketh me to lie down in pastures green,
My cup with His blessings overflows;
He anointeth my head with oil from above,
For my Master has bountiful stores. [Refrain]

3 He prepareth a table in the midst of my foes,
But His goodness and mercy are there;
At the end of death's valley, in the house of the Lord,
There forever His goodness we'll share. [Refrain]
