Beside Still Waters
Words: Bernard Hamblen
Music: Beside Still Waters | Bernard Hamblen
Weary and sad at heart, bent ’neath thy load:
Heavy is thy burden, dark is the road:
Then, in thy loneliness, help draweth nigh;
Jesus, kind Shepherd, will hear thy cry:
Beside still waters He leadeth thee;
His love will guard thee tenderly;
Thy grief shall pass, thy doubt shall flee;
Beside still waters He leadeth thee.

Lost in the darkness, far from thy goal:
No voice to cheer thee, none to console:
Broken in spirit, hope seems in vain;
Then, in thy hour of need, joy comes again.
Fear not, oh pilgrim, dark tho’ thy way:
Press on and faint not; soon comes the day:
“Lead on, kind Shepherd:” this be thy pray’r:
Jesus will guide thee to pastures fair.

Beside still waters He leadeth thee;
His love will guard thee tenderly;
Thy grief shall pass, thy doubt shall flee;
Beside still waters He leadeth thee,
Beside still waters He leadeth thee.
