The Lord’s my Shepherd, I’ll not want

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.
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.
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.
My table Thou hast furnished
  In presence of my foes;
My head Thou dost with oil anoint,
  And my cup overflows.
Goodness and mercy all my life
  Shall surely follow me,
And in God’s house forevermore
  My dwelling-place shall be.

This hymn really sums up the Christian's relationship with our God.

Emotional listening to the hymn at Queen Elizabeth funeral... Goodness and mercy all my life

Shall surely follow me,

And in God’s house forevermore

My dwelling-place shall be.

I just Listen to this Hymn as I watched the Funeral Service of The Late Queen Elizabeth II. It was tagged as the Queens Favorite Hymn!!

When the son of man shall come, shall He find faith on Earth? Feels good to know His own is here occupying till He comes. Trusting Him for protection, for guidance, declaring it in songs as this & helping others to access it. God bless you all in Jesus Name. Kindly remain unappologetically God's sheep in a decaying world. Remain blameless but wise. Jesus will soon ( still) come ( only) for His own. Love... Shalom!

Thank you for this. This is the way I sang it in school. They have changed it now. Not for the better.

The Lord is surely my shepherd and I shall not want. This is my everyday conscience.
