The Lord Is My Shepherd (Passmore)
Words: W. S. Passmore
Music: The Lord Is My Shepherd | Henry Smart
1. The Lord is my Shepherd, I never shall want,
For lack of His mercies, my soul shall not pant;
In pleasant green pastures I daily abide,
He leads me the peaceful still waters beside.
My soul He restoreth, and for His Name’s sake,
The path of true righteousness bids me to take;
Yea, though I pass through death’s dark shade,
I will not by evil be ever dismay’d.
The Lord is my Shepherd, I never shall want!

2. For thou art my Shepherd and with me always,
Thy rod and Thy staff are my comfort and stay;
My table Thou spreadest in presence of foes,
My head Thou anointest, my cup overflows;
Thy goodness and mercy shall follow me still,
While life’s earnest duties I daily fulfill;
Till joyous my spirit shall claim its reward,
And dwell evermore in the house of the Lord.
The Lord is my Shepherd, I never shall want!
