"THE LORD'S MY SHEPHERD"
Music & Lyrics by Sonia King

The Lord's my shepherd - I'll not want.
He makes me down to lie.
In pastures green, he leadeth me,
the quiet waters by.
In death's dark vale I'll fear none ill
for thou art by my side.
Thy rod and staff - they comfort me.
Shepherd - guard my life.

A table thou hast prepared for me
in the presence of my foes.
Anoint my head with the precious oil
and make my cup overflow.
Goodness and mercy shall follow me,
all the days of my life.
And I shall dwell in the house of peace,
with my shepherd, in his fold.

CHORUS:
The Lord is - my shepherd.
(Hinneh mah tov oumah na'im)
He makes me down to lie.
(Shevet achim gam yachad)

(Repeat above)

And in the house of the lord to come
all nations at peace in the land.
The shepherd there in the midst of them,
will guide them with his hand.
He'll lead them to living waters pure
- Wipe all tears from their eyes.
The Lamb of God is our shepherd still.
Shepherd - guard my life.

Our good shepherd did speak to us.
"I'm the door of the sheep" he said.
"They'll hear my voice and will follow me.
None shall be snatched from my hand."
He came to bring an abundant life,
and Life eternally.
The shepherd knows all his sheep by name.
They know the voice of him!

(Repeat CHORUS)
