Words by F. Bland Tucker, an Episcopal Priest

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1.  The Lord my God my shepherd is;

how could I want or need?

In pastures green, by streams serene,

he safely doth me lead.

2.  To wholeness he restores my soul

and doth in mercy bless,

and helps me take for his Name’s sake

the paths of righteousness.

3.  Yea, even when I pass through

the valley of death’s shade,

I will  not fear, for thou are here,

to comfort and to aid.

4.  Thou hast in grace my table spread

secure in all alarms,

and filled my cup, and borne me up

in everlasting arms.

5.  Then surely I can trust thy love

for all the days to come,

that I may tell thy praise,

and dwell forever in thy home.
