KJV Text (alt. audio): Chapter 23:

     1 A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.(KJV)

Hymn: WS 783:
Jesus, Shepherd of the Sheep

1. Jesus, shepherd of the sheep,  
Who Your Father’s flock does keep, 
Safe we Wake and safe We sleep,  
Guarded still by You. 

2. In Your promise firm We stand;  
None can take us from Your hand. 
Speak! We hear! At Your command,  
We will follow You. 

3. By Your blood our souls were bought;  
By Your life salvation wrought; 
By Your light our feet are taught,  
Lord, to follow You. 

4. Father, draw us to Your Son;  
We with joy will follow on 
Till the work of grace is done,  
There to live with You. 

5. We, in robes of glory dressed,  
Join th’ assembly of the blest, 
Gathered to eternal rest  
In the fold with You.
