Representative Text

1 To thy pastures green and fair,

3 By thy waters still and clear,
I shall wander without fear;
Happy by my Shepherd's side,
All my wants shall be supplied.

4 Lord, wilt thou my shepherd be?
Help me then to follow thee;
At thy feet myself I cast,
Thee to serve while life shall last.
