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

        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, tho' 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.
