The Lord's My Shepherd

Melody - "Amazing Grace"

From the Scottish Psalter

The Lord's my shepherd - I'll not want;
He makes me down to lie
In pastures green, He leadeth me
The quiet waters by.

2. My soul he doth restore again,
And me to walk doth make
Within the paths of righteousness,
E'en for His own name's sake.

  3. Yea, tho I walk thru death's dark vale,
Yet will I fear no ill,
For Thou art with me, and Thy rod
And staff me comfort still.

4. My table Thou hast furnish-ed
In presence of my foes;
My head Thou dost with oil annoint,
And my cup overflows.

5. Goodness and mercy all my life
Shall surely follow me,
And in God's House forevermore
My dwelling place shall be.
