The Lord My Pasture Will Prepare


31243, Hymns, The Lord My Pasture Will Prepare, no. 109

1. The Lord my pasture will prepare
And feed me with a shepherd's care.
His presence will my wants supply,
And guard me with a watchful eye.
My noonday walks he will attend
And all my silent midnight hours defend.

2. When in the sultry glebe I faint,
Or on the thirsty mountain pant,
To fertile vales and dewy meads
My weary, wand'ring steps he leads,
Where peaceful rivers, soft and slow,
Amid the cooling verdant landscape flow.
