The Lord is my Shepherd
Charles Villiers Stanford
The Lord is my Shepherd,
therefore can I lack nothing
He shall feed me in a green pasture,
and shall lead me forth beside the waters of comfort.
He shall convert my soul,
and shall bring me forth in the paths of righteousness, for His Name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil:
for Thou art with me, Thy rod and Thy staff comfort me.
Thou shalt prepare a table before me against them that trouble me:
Thou annointest my head with oil, and my cup shall be full.
But Thy loving kindness and Thy mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
Charles Villiers Stanford (1852-1924)
