Psalm 23

Words: Brady and  Tate, A New Version of the Psalms of David


   1  The Lord himself, the mighty Lord,
         vouchsafes to be my guide;
      The shepherd, by whose constant care
          my wants are all supplied.

   2  In tender grass he makes me feed,
         and gently there repose;
      Then leads me to cool shades, and where
         refreshing water flows.

   3  He does my wand'ring soul reclaim,
         and, to his endless praise,
      Instruct with humble zeal to want
         in his most righteous ways.

   4  I pass the gloomy vale of death,
         from fear and danger free;
      For there his aiding rod and staff
         defend and comfort me.

   5  In presence of my spiteful foes
         he does my table spread,
      He crowns my cup with cheerful wine,
         with oil anoints my head.

   6  Since God does thus his wondrous love 
         through all my life extend,
      That life to him I will devote,
         and in his temple spend.
