1 O Lord my shepherd, lead me in your ways
to cooling streams where I shall drink and live;
to pastures green where I may spend my days
in perfect peace that only you can give.

2 When deepest darkness falls around my head,
I need not fear with you close by my side;
and all along the stony road I tread
you will be there to strengthen and to guide.

3 You welcome me to share the holy feast,
you offer me forgiveness and your love;
and with your goodness all my days are blessed-
until at last I reach your home above.

from Psalm 23
