1 The Lord's my shepherd: little lambs
May safely trust His care;
I shall not want, for He will lead
To pastures green and fair.
Beside the waters, safe and still,
He guides me day by day (day by day);
And in the paths of righteousness,
He gently leads the way.
Oh, loving Shepherd, call my name,
And keep me near thy side;
For thou art evermore the same,
My Guardian, Friend and Guide.
2 When thro’ the valley I must walk,
Where death’s dark shadows fall,
With rod and staff thou wilt be near,
To help me when I call.
A bounteous table thou dost spread,
Thou givest more and more (more and more);
With all the blessings of thy love,
Behold, my cup runs o’er. [Refrain]
3 Thy care unceasing I will trust,
I follow after thee;
For thou dost call me to thy side,
Thy little lamb to be.
Thy goodness, mercy, love and truth,
Shall follow me each day (me each day);
And I shall dwell in God’s own house,
My Shepherd says I may. [Refrain]
