The LORD is our shepherd; we shall not need.
Green pasture rest we receive, and you lead
Us by calm waters, our souls to restore,
On paths of righteousness forevermore––
All for your name’s sake.
Even though we walk through the valley,
Death’s shadow shall not prevail, for we
Are with you––the shepherd by our side;
Guiding and protecting, you abide,
And we need not fear.
May you name be shown holy, your kingdom come, and your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.
You’ve made us a feast; enemies surround.
We dine with the king, and therefore abounds
All safety, all supply in unending measure.
Goodness and mercy pursuing for our pleasure.
We will dwell with you forever.
