The Lord My Pasture Will Prepare

Lyrics

  1. 1. The Lord my pasture will prepare
    And feed me with a shepherd’s care.
    His presence will my want supply
    And guard me with a watchful eye.
    My noonday walks he will attend
    And all my silent midnight hours defend.
  2. 2. When in the sultry glebe I faint,
    Or on the thirsty mountain pant,
    To fertile vales and dewy meads
    My weary, wand’ring steps he leads,
    Where peaceful rivers, soft and slow,
    Amid the cooling verdant landscape flow.
