The Lord is my Shepherd, I never shall want,
For lack if His mercies, my soul shall not pant,
In pleasant green pastures I daily abide,
He leads me the peaceful still waters beside.

My soul He restoreth, and for His Name's sake,
The path of true righteousness bids me to take;
Yea, though I pass through death's valley and shade,
I will not by evil be ever dismayed.
The Lord is my Shepherd, I never shall want!

For Thou art my Shepherd, and with me alway,
Thy rod and thy staff are my comfort and stay;
My table Thou spreadest in presence of foes,
My head thou anointest, my cup overflows;

Thy goodness and mercy shall follow me still,
While life's earnest duties I daily fulfil,
Till joyous my spirit shall claim its reward,
And dwell evermore in the house of the Lord!
The Lord is my Shepherd, I never shall want!
