The Lord My Shepherd Is

Full Text

The Lord my shepherd is,
I shall be well supplied;
since he is mine and I am his,

and full salvation flows.

If e’er I go astray,
he will my soul reclaim,
and guide me in his own right way

my cup with blessings overflows,
and joy exalts my head.

The bounties of your love
shall crown my following days;
nor from your house will I remove,
nor cease to speak your praise!
