Psalter 55

Tune

Return to the Psalter Page

1. The Lord my Shepherd holds me
Within His tender care,
And with His flock He folds me,
No want shall find me there.
In pastures green He feeds me,
With plenty I am blest;
By quiet streams He leads me
And makes me safely rest.

2. Whatever ill betides me,
He will restore and bless;
For His Name’s sake He guides me
In paths of righteousness.
Thy rod and staff shall cheer me
In death’s dark vale and shade,
For thou wilt then be near me;
I shall not be afraid.

3. My food Thou dost appoint me,
Supplied before my foes;
With oil Thou dost anoint me,
My cup of bliss o’erflows.
Thy goodness, Lord, shall guide me,
Thy mercy cheer my way;
A home Thou wilt provide me
Within Thy house for aye.
