The Lord gave us a shepherd,
We're no longer in want.
He helps us find God's green pastures,
He leads us along still waters,
And he is used by God to restore our souls.
He guides us by straight pathways,
Bringing honor to God's name.
When we walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
We are not afraid because he walks with us.
His teaching and correction comfort and strengthen us.
He helps us stand strong in the face of evil.
He is the oil of healing and health in our souls.
Through him God has overflowed
our lives with blessing.
Goodness and mercy are sure to
follow us all our days,
And we are secure in eternal life Because the Lord gave us a shepherd.
