My Wonderful Shepherd (Ps23)

Rev S.H. Tow has arranged this beautiful hymn based on music by Mendelssohn.

Lyrics: Rev S. H. Tow
Music: Mendelssohn

The Lord’s my wonderful shepherd,
In Him I shall not want
He makes me lie in green pastures,
He leads me to waters still
To me my soul He restoreth,
In righteous pathways He leads
He leads me for His own name’s sake,
So gently leadeth me;

The Lord’s my wonderful Shepherd,
He gently leads me home.

My soul He sweetly restoreth,
To righteousness and peace
Yea, thru death’s valley of shadow,
With Him shall I safely go
The darkness shall not affright me,
For Thou art by my side
Thy rod, they staff they comfort me,
No ill shall ever betide

A table Thou hast prepared me
in presence of my foes
My head with oil Thou hast ‘nointed,
My cup it doth overflow
Goodness and mercy shall follow,
Thru all the days of my life
And in God’s house will I dwell ever more,
In mansions fair will I dwell
