                                  Text From:
                              THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL
                 (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        1. The Lord my Shepherd is,
        I shall be well supplied.
        Since He is mine and I am His,
        What can I want beside?

        2. He leads me to the place
        Where heav'nly pasture grows,
        Where living waters gently pass
        And full salvation flows.

        3. If e'er I go astray,
        He doth my soul reclaim
        And guides me in His own right way
        For His most holy name.

        4. While He affords His aid,
        I cannot yield to fear;
        Though I should walk through death's dark shade,
        My Shepherd's with me there.

        5. Amid surrounding foes
        Thou dost my table spread;
        My cup with blessing overflows,
        And joy exults my head.

        6. The bounties of Thy love
        Shall crown my following days,
        Nor from Thy house will I remove
        Nor cease to speak Thy praise.
