The Lord my pasture shall pre-pare,

And feed me with a shepherd's care;

His presence shall my wants supply,

And guard me with a watchful eye;

And guard me with a watchful eye;

My noon-day walks he will at-tend,

And all my mid-night hours de-fend.

When in the sultry glebe I faint,

Or on the thirsty mountain pant,

To fertile vales and dewy meads

My weary wandering steps he leads;

Where peaceful rivers soft and slow,

Amid  the verdant landscapes flow.

Though in a bare and rugged way,

Through devious, lonely wilds I stray,

Thy presence shall my pain beguile;

The barren wilderness shall smile,

With sudden green and herbage crowned,

And streams shall murmur all around.

Though in the paths of death I tread,

With gloomy horrors overspread,

My steadfast heart shall fear no ill,

For thou O Lord! art with me still;

Thy friendly rod shall give me aid,

And guide me through the dreadful shade.
