The Lord is our Shepherd, our Guardian and Guide

Representative Text

The Lord is my shepherd, my guardian, my guide,
Whatsoever I want, he doth surely provide.
Ever since I was born, it is he that hat crowned
The life that he gave me with blessings all ‘around—
The life that he gave me with blessings,
With blessings, with blessings, with blessings, all ‘round.

Author: John Byrom

John Byrom was born in 1691, at Manchester, where his father was a linen-draper. He entered Trinity College, Cambridge, 1708; became a Fellow of the College in 1714; took his M.A. in 1716, and then proceeded to Montpelier, where he studied medicine. He afterwards abandoned medicine, settled in London, and obtained his living by teaching a system of shorthand, which he had projected. He was elected a member of the Royal Society in 1724. He died Sept. 28, 1763. The first edition of Byrom's poems appeared in 1773, in two volumes. A more complete edition was published in 1814. Byrom did not seek publicity as an author, but wrote verses only for recreation. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A., 1872… Go to person page >
