In God’s green pastures feeding

1
In God’s green pastures feeding by His cool waters lie;
Soft in the evening walk my Lord and I,
All the sheep of His pasture
Fare so wondrously fine; His sheep am I.
  Sisters: Waters cool,
Brothers: In the valley;
Sisters: Pastures green,
Brothers: On the mountain,
Sisters: In the evening
Brothers: In the evening
Everyone: Walk my Lord and I.
  Sisters: Dark the night,
Brothers: In the valley,
Sisters: Rough the way,
Brothers: On the mountain,
Sisters: Step by step...
Brothers: Step by step.
Everyone: My Lord and I.
2
Through the streets of the city in the darkness of the night,
Far from the fold, He heard my lonely cry.
Now I sit at His table in the palace of light;
His sheep am I.

I sang this song in 6th through 8th grade. This song brings back many fond and meaningful memories. After all these year I could only recalled part of the lyrics but I remembered the tune. I was ecstatic that I found the song. Over the last 45 years I have looked for the entire lyrics. My children have heard me speak of this song there entire life now I can share it with my children and grandchildren.

I am 63 years old. My dad pastored, on Sunday nights the teens would go to a members house for fellowship, games and food. Being a PK I got to go. At the age of 9, I was riding in the Coopers station wagon with them and 6 teenagers to their house. We were singing this song when we crossed a RR track with a train coming. Mr & Mrs Cooper died, and the teenager in the very back were killed. As I’m going through my parents belongings I come across the newspaper articles. My mind immediately goes to this song. Soothing in the tragedy. Peaceful in the memories.

My mom used to sing this when I was a little girl. One of my best memories of her, since her passing in 97. I cherish all that was good in her.

I learned this song originally in piano lessons. It was in The Sacred Music songbook. I later sang it at youth camp.

When I had children, I sang this nightly as a lullaby to them. And now I sing it as a lullaby to my great grandchildren.

I was out walking this morning in our beautiful picturesque Christian Village called Poatina, tucked under the mountain range of the Western Teirs but in the other direction, gazing over the valleys. Like Eirween I thrilled to the site of the luscious green valleys, the glorious scenery and sheep & cattle grazing in the meadows - this song also came to mind many years ago when my dear deceased sister and I sang together. I came back & looked it up on the computer to refresh me with those beautiful words - thanks!

The year was 1960. I was 15. I was at camp Sunnybrook in PA for a weekend retreat with my church in Endicott NY. A youth leader at the camp spoke about the importance of allowing Christ to be involved in our life decisions, and namely to chose who we will marry, - if we will marry. Although Jesus was my Savior, I did not know Him as the Lord of my life until that weekend. I gave Him my list of wants and told Him I wanted what He wanted for me more than what I wanted for me. I asked Him that day to pick my husband if He wanted me to marry. That was the weekend I met a tall lanky boy I had no interest in but who later became my husband. June 13, 2019 will mark 55 years together. I praise God that He is faithful to hear our prayers and to work the ingredients of our lives together for our good and His glory. Blessings.

Travelling on the Heart of Wales railway line this morning - through the gentle valleys, glorious scenery and sheep grazing in the meadows - the first half of this beautiful song came to mind from so many years ago. Thank you so much for this precious, gentle reminder of our Saviour’s love for us!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting this song. For years I have been trying to find it (I must be in your parents age group as we sang it at our local Intervarsity Christian Fellowship meetings when I was an older teen and young adult.. Amazingly everyone I've sung it to over recent years never ever heard it before. So, I am now in the process of putting together a programme the Lord has laid on my heart and this song once more it came into my spirit. I thought I would check one more time to see if it was on line. I believe the Lord led me to do so as I have done so over the years and found nothing. Thank you. God bless you.
