1 My faithful shepherd is the Lord,
who leads me by the pastures green
to pools of water sweet and clean,
and makes me stronger through the word.

2 God's promise is my certain guide,
whose way is truth, whose path is right:
'I shall not fear the darkest night
for you, O Lord, are at my side!'

3 'You bring to those who hate me, shame;
you spread a feast and fill my cup.
It overflows! You raise me up
to live with you and bless your name.'

4 To God the Father, Spirit, Son,
be glory now, until the song
of mercy through the ages long
in heaven shall greet the Three-in-One!
