THE GOD OF LOVE


24 The Lord Is My Shepherd
(POLAND. 11,11,11,11)
James Montgomery,1822 Thomas Koschat,1862
Arranged by B.C. Blodgett,1858
 
  1. The Lord is my Shep-herd; no want shall I Know.
    I feed in green pastures, safe folded I rest
    He leadeth my soul where the still waters flow,
    Re-stores me when wand-'ring, re-deems when op-prest,
    Re-stores me when wand-'ring, re-deems when op-prest.
  2. Thro' val-ley and shad-ow of death though I stray
    Since thou art my Guar-dian, no e-vil I fear;
    Thy rod shall de-fend me, thy staff be my stay;
    No harm can be-fall me, my Com-fort-er near,
    No harm can be-fall me, my Com-fort-er near.
  3. Let good-ness and mer-cy, my boun-ti-ful God,
    Still follow my steps till I meet thee a-bove;
    I seek by the path which my fore-fa-thers trod,
    Thro' lands of thier so-journ, thy king-dom of love,
    Thro' lands of thier so-journ, thy king-dom of love.
    A-men
