His Yoke is Easy

Representative Text

1 The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me down to lie
In pastures green, He leadeth me
The quiet waters by.

His yoke is easy; His burden is light.
I’ve found it so; I’ve found it so.
He leadeth me by day and by night,
Where living waters flow.

2 My soul crieth out:" Restore me again,
And give me the strength to take
The narrow path of righteousness,
E’en for His own name’s sake." [Chorus]

3 Yea, tho’ I should walk the valley of death,
Yet why should I fear from ill?
For Thou art with me, and Thy rod
And staff me comfort still. [Chorus]
