The Lord my precious Shepherd is,
He guides me day by day,
If I but trust His holy word,
In paths of right I’ll stay.
I’ll fear no evil if He leads,
Beside the waters still,
He anoints my head with oil so sweet,
My cup with joy He fills.
Though I walk through the valley dark,
No shadows will befall,
Thy rod, Thy staff, they comfort me,
Thou art my God, my all.
Surely Thy goodness and Thy love,
Thy mercy free on call,
Will keep me safe from sin and strife,
I’ll praise Thee, Lord of all.
