Psalm 23 (Listen)

The Lord Is My Shepherd

A Psalm of David.

23:1   The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
    He makes me lie down in green pastures.
  He leads me beside still waters.1
    He restores my soul.
  He leads me in paths of righteousness2
    for his name’s sake.

  Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,3
    I will fear no evil,
  for you are with me;
    your rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.

  You prepare a table before me
    in the presence of my enemies;
  you anoint my head with oil;
    my cup overflows.
  Surely4 goodness and mercy5 shall follow me
    all the days of my life,
  and I shall dwell6 in the house of the LORD

Hymn: WS 783: Jesus, Shepherd of the Sheep

1. Jesus, shepherd of the sheep,  
Who Your Father’s flock does keep, 
Safe we Wake and safe We sleep,  
Guarded still by You. 

2. In Your promise firm We stand;  
None can take us from Your hand. 
Speak! We hear! At Your command,  
We will follow You. 

3. By Your blood our souls were bought;  
By Your life salvation wrought; 
By Your light our feet are taught,  
Lord, to follow You. 

4. Father, draw us to Your Son;  
We with joy will follow on 
Till the work of grace is done,  
There to live with You. 

5. We, in robes of glory dressed,  
Join th’ assembly of the blest, 
Gathered to eternal rest  
In the fold with You.
