My Shepherd will supply my need,
Jehovah is His name.
In pastures fresh He makes me feed,
Beside the living stream.
He brings my wandering spirit back
When I forsake His ways.
He leads me for His mercy’s sake
In paths of truth and grace.
When I walk through the shades of death,
Thy presence is my stay;
One word of Thy supporting breath
Drives all my fears away.
Thy hand in sight of all my foes
Doth still my table spread;
My cup with blessings overflows,
Thine oil anoints my head.
The sure provisions of my God
Attend my all my days:
O may Thy house be mine abode,
And all my word be praise.
There would I find a settled rest
While others go and come;
No more a stranger or a guest,
But like a child at home.
– by Isaac Watts
