God Is My Shepherd
Music by Antonin Dvorak
Words from Psalm 23, adapted by K. K. Davis
God is my shepherd, I want for nothing
My rest is in the pleasant meadows,
He leadeth me where quiet waters flow
My fainting soul doth He restore
And guideth me in the ways of peace
to glorify His name
And though in death’s dark valley
My steps must wander,
My spirit shall not fear
For Thou art by me still
Thy rod and staff are with me
And they shall my comfort be.
