Representative Text

1 The Lord is my shepherd, my keeper and guide,
My wants he'll supply and for me he'll provide;
In midst of green pastures he makes me to lie,
Beside the still waters that gently pass by.

My Shepherd will provide, whatever may betide;
I am secure,
For his promise is sure,
The Lord will provide.

2 Whenever I wander, and leave the true way,
And like a lost sheep from the flock go astray;
My soul he restores to the path that is right,
He leads me in safety, I walk in his light. [Chorus]

3 When called to surrender my faltering breath,
And pass through the vale of the shadow of death,
The presence of Jesus will brighten the tomb,
With hope and with gladness dispelling its gloom. [Chorus]

4 For me his free bounty a table has spread;
And blessings unmeasured he pours on my head;
My cup with abundance and joy overflows;
He dries all my tears, and he heals all my woes. [Chorus]
