Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 The Lord is my Shepherd, no want shall I know,
He makes me to rest where the green pastures grow;
He takes me away from the world and its strife,
And leads me beside the still waters of life.

2 My soul often weary with sin and with care,
He restores and gives strength in answer to pray’r.
In th’path of the righteous my feet he will keep;
The Lord is my Shepherd; he guardeth his sheep.

3 When thro’ the deep valley of death I shall go,
Its shade shall not fright me, no evil I’ll know.
Thou, Shepherd, art with me; thy staff and thy rod
My comfort shall be thro’ this pathway to God.

4 Thou spread’st me a table in presence of foes,
With thy love and rich grace my cup overflows;
With goodness and mercy thou crownest my days,
And fain would I dwell with thee, ever to praise.
