1 When I thirst, my Shepherd leads me
Where the quiet waters flow,
When I hunger, still He leads me
Where the sweetest pastures grow.

Yes, He leads me all the way,
As I follow by His side;
All my life is filled with sunshine
Since my soul is sanctified.

2 Yes, my life is in His keeping,
In the paths of righteousness;
In the vale or on the mountain,
Ev’rywhere He leads to bless.

Yes, He leads me all the way,
As I follow by His side;
All my life is filled with sunshine
Since my soul is sanctified.

3 I am feasting at His able,
Though my foes are round about;
With His “oil of glory” anointed,
I can sing, and lead and shout.

Oh, my heart is full of joy,
Nothing shall my peace destroy;
While I’m feasting with the Bridegroom
Nothing can my soul annoy.

4 Oh, my cup is running over
With the wine of holiness;
I cannot contain the blessing,
Oh, what rapture I possess!

Oh, my heart is full of joy,
Nothing shall my peace destroy;
While I’m feasting with the Bridegroom
Nothing can my soul annoy.

5 O beloved! help me sing it,
Help me shout it o’er and o’er;
Shout the praise of Christ, my Shepherd,
Shout it loud from shore to shore.

Oh, my heart is full of joy,
Nothing shall my peace destroy;
While I’m feasting with the Bridegroom
Nothing can my soul annoy.
