     1 Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days. 2 Give a portion to seven, and also to eight; for thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth. 3 If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth: and if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be. 4 He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap. 5 As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all. 6 In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.(KJV)

1. The Lord my Shepherd is, 
I shall be well supplied. 
Since He is mine and I am His, 
What can I want beside? 

2. He leads me to the place 
Where heav’nly pasture grows, 
Where living waters gently pass 
And full salvation flows. 

3. If e’er I go astray, 
He doth my soul reclaim 
And guides me in His own right way 
For His most holy name. 

4. While He affords His aid, 
I cannot yield to fear; 
Though I should walk through death’s dark shade, 
My Shepherd’s with me there. 

5. Amid surrounding foes 
Thou dost my table spread; 
My cup with blessing overflows, 
And joy exults my head. 

6. The bounties of Thy love 
Shall crown my following days, 
Nor from Thy house will I remove 
Nor cease to speak Thy praise.
