The Lord’s my Shepherd, I’ll not want

1
The Lord’s my Shepherd, I’ll not want;
  He makes me down to lie
In pastures green; He leadeth me
  The quiet waters by.
2
My soul He doth restore again,
  And me to walk doth make
Within the paths of righteousness,
  E’en for His own name’s sake.
3
Yea, though I walk in death’s dark vale,
  Yet will I fear no ill;
For Thou art with me, and Thy rod
  And staff me comfort still.
4
My table Thou hast furnished
  In presence of my foes;
My head Thou dost with oil anoint,
  And my cup overflows.
5
Goodness and mercy all my life
  Shall surely follow me,
And in God’s house forevermore
  My dwelling-place shall be.

Christina

What a joy to find these lyrics! I heard this version of the 23rd Psalm decades ago in a Billy Graham International Crusade and have searched for years for these words. Surely this is one of the most beautiful and comforting of the Psalms, and I am thankful that the Word of God is “forever settled in heaven” (Ps. 119:89).


Uduak Nduoyo

This is my best hymn so far because anytime am sad feel rejected and abandoned, the only hymn that will come to my mine is psalm 23 and once I keep singing it, all my worries and pains will just fade away.
