341. The Lord Is My Shepherd

1 The Lord is my Shepherd, no want shall I know,
I feed in green pastures, safe-folded I rest;
He leadeth my soul where the still waters flow,
Restores me when wandering, redeems when oppressed;
Restores me when wandering, redeems when oppressed.

2 Thro' the valley and shadow of death though I stray,
Since Thou art my guardian, no evil I fear;
Thy rod shall defend me, Thy staff be my stay;
No harm can befall with my Comforter near,
No harm can befall with my Comforter near.

3 In the midst of affliction my table is spread,
With blessings unmeasured my cup runneth o'er;
With perfume and oil, Thou anointest my head;
O what shall I ask of Thy providence more?
O what shall I ask of Thy providence more?

4 Let goodness and mercy, my bountiful God,
Still follow my steps till I meet Thee above;
I seek, by the path which my forefathers trod
Thro' the land of their sojourn, Thy kingdom of love,
Thro' the land of their sojourn, Thy Kingdom of love.

Amen.
