303. Thou Art My Shepherd

1. Thou art my Shepherd
Caring in ev'ry need,
Watching Thy flock to feed,
Trusting Thee still.
In the green pastures low,
Where lving waters flow,
Safe by Thy side I go,
Fearing no ill.

2. Or if my way lie
Where dark'ning shadows nigh
My soul would terrify
With sudden chill,
Yet I am not afraid;
While softly on my head
Thy tender hand is laid,
I fear no ill.

3. Goodness and mercy
Ever shall follow me,
Till by Thy grace I see
Thy holy hill;
Lord, in that home with Thee,
Joyful eternally,
Folded Thy flock shall be,
Safe from all ill.
