‘Till your life reaches fullness,
The LORD be your Shepherd;
And to His lovingkindness
May you e’er be tethered.
When you’re tempted to wander
And seek earthly pleasures,
My dear, look to your Father
The fount of all treasure.
When you’re weary from striving
Look for solace no more,
In green pastures abiding
The sheep’s rest is sure.
Beside still river waters
Follow in righteousness.
When through valleys you traverse
Fear not pain, loss, or death.
‘Tis the Shepherd’s rod and staff
That alone comfort His.
He will make straight the sheep’s path,
Stays close through each abyss.
Though this world mock, jeer, and tempt
By name the Shepherd calls
Those by God etern’ly kept
And from His care they’ll ne’er fall.
‘Tis the dear Shepherd’s voice
That triumphs all the rest,
And while sorrow we can’t avoid
He wields it for our best.
Dear sheep: stay by the Shepherd,
His glory be your aim.
Where he leads, may you follow;
May you faithful e’er stay.
