The Lord is my Shepherd forever

The Lord is my Shepherd forever,
  He maketh me down to lie,
He leads me beside the still waters
  O how He does satisfy!
  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days, all the days of my life;
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days, all the days of my life.
And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever,
And I shall feast at the table spread for me;
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
  All the days, all the days of my life.
My Shepherd Himself is my pasture,
  My Shepherd, the waters of rest;
I eat of His riches in spirit,
  I drink, and O how I am blest!
My Shepherd my soul is restoring,
  My will, and emotion, and mind;
And though through the valley I’m walking,
  O what a Companion I find!
A table prepared by my Shepherd
  I feast on and Satan destroy;
My head is anointed with oil,
  My cup runneth over with joy!
And now in His house I am dwelling
  Enjoying the goodness of God;
My pleasure is far beyond telling,
  My pleasure is Jesus my Lord!

The way to behave in God's house is to have a pleasant household administration, and intimate stewardship, and to dispense Christ to all the members of God's household.

Oh, how I love this hymn because through this hymn I can see the lovingkindness, grace, and mercy our Lord Jesus bestows upon us every day as we walk through the valley. How we can rest in Him and enjoy all His goodness and riches. Hallelujah, praise Him forever.

O what a Shepherd, all the days of our life,

"Goodness" refers to Christ

"Mercy," the Father

"follow us" the Spirit!
