The Lord My Pasture Will Prepare


    The Lord My Pasture Will Prepare


    1. The Lord my pasture will prepare

    And feed me with a shepherd’s care.

    His presence will my want supply

    And guard me with a watchful eye.

    My noonday walks he will attend

    And all my silent midnight hours defend.

    2. When in the sultry glebe I faint,

    Or on the thirsty mountain pant,

    To fertile vales and dewy meads

    My weary, wand’ring steps he leads,

    Where peaceful rivers, soft and slow,

    Amid the cooling verdant landscape flow.
