Lest the LORD see it, and it displease him,
and he turn away his wrath from him.

The Lord is My Shepherd
The Lord is my Shepherd, no want shall I know; I feed in green pastures, safe-folded I rest; He leadeth my soul where the still waters flow, restores me when wand’ring, redeems when oppressed; Restores me when wand’ring, redeems when oppressed.
Thro’ the valley and shadow of death tho’ I stray, since Thou art my Guardian, no evil I fear; Thy rod shall defend me, Thy staff be my stay; No harm can befall with my Comforter near; No harm can befall with my Comforter near.
In the midst of affliction my table is spread; with blessings unmeasured my cup runneth o’er; With perfume and oil Thou anointest my head; O what shall I ask of Thy providence more? O what shall I ask of Thy providence more?
Let goodness and mercy, my bountiful God, still follow my steps till I meet Thee above; I seek by the path which my forefathers trod, thro’ the land of their sojourn, Thy kingdom of love; Thro’ the land of their sojourn, Thy kingdom of love.
