The Lord Is My Shepherd (B. 47)

1st Verse:
The Lord is my Shepherd;
He is Lord and I am His guest.
Fresh and green are the pastures where He leads me to my rest.
Near peaceful waters He leads me
To cheer up my cheerless heart.
He guides me on the safe path,
He will always do his part.

Chorus:
If I should ever walk in the valley of darkness,
No evil would I fear;
You are there to show the way
If I should ever walk in the valley of darkness,
Your crook and your staff,
They will lead me to the day.

2nd Verse:
You prepare a banquet in the sight of my foes,
You cool my head with oil, and my cup now overflows.
Surely goodness and kindness will be with me all the way.
The Lord’s house for my dwelling, I will thank Him ev’ry day.

Chorus:
If I should ever walk in the valley of darkness,
No evil would I fear;
You are there to show the way
If I should ever walk in the valley of darkness,
Your crook and your staff,
They will lead me to the day.

3rd Verse:
Glory be to the Father; glory to His only Son.
Glory be to the Spirit; glory, glory ev’ry one.
Glory be to the Father; glory to His only Son.
Glory be to the Spirit; glory, glory ev’ry one.

Chorus:
If I should ever walk in the valley of darkness,
No evil would I fear;
You are there to show the way
If I should ever walk in the valley of darkness,
Your crook and your staff,
They will lead me to the day.

  1. Thanks for uploading this. It is a lovely song! We used to sing this in grade school till high school but I forgot the melody. I only remember the chorus part. Do you have a record of the song or if not, maybe you can sing it and upload it here?

    Thanks so much if you do and even if you might not be able to do it. ^_^
