My Shepherd Will Supply My Need


1. My Shepherd will supply my need:
And Jesus is His Name;
In pastures fresh He makes me feed,
Beside the living stream.
He brings my wandering spirit back
When I forsake His ways,
He leads me, for His mercy's sake,
In paths of truth and grace.

2. When I walk through the shades of death,
His presence is my stay;
A word of his supporting breath
Drives all my fears away.
His hand, in sight of all my foes,
Each day my table spreads;
My cup with blessings overflows,
His oil anoints my head.

3. The sure provisions of my Lord
Attend me all my days;
O may his house be my abode,
And all my work be praise!
There would I find a settled rest,
While others come and go;
No more a stranger, nor a guest,
But like a child at home.
