1 Thou, Jehovah, art my Shepherd,
Therefore I no want shall know;
In green pastures Thou dost rest me,
Leadest where still waters flow,
And, when fainting,
Sweet refreshment dost bestow.
2 For Thy Name's sake, Thou dost guide me
In the paths of righteousness;
Tho' I walk the vale of shadows,
Fears no more my soul oppress;
Thou art with me,
With Thy rod and staff to bless.
3 Thou preparest me a table
In the presence of the foe;
Thou my head with oil anointest,
Yea, my cup doth overflow,
O my Saviour,
Having Thee, no want I know.
4 Surely grace and loving-kindness
Shall forever follow me,
Till, my days of life all ended,
Evermore my home shall be,
O Jehovah, In Thy holy house with Thee.
