If you know where to get a good pho­to of Green­wood (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


When I need a ten­der shep­herd,
Who will lead what­e’er be­tide,
By the still or trou­bled wa­ters,
Who will be my faith­ful guide?


Jesus, how I love Him,
More than all the world be­side!
Jesus, how I love Him!
He alone shall be my guide.

Who will lead me to the fount­ain
Where the soul is sa­tis­fied?
To the spring of love and mer­cy,
Who will be my faith­ful guide?


When my err­ing foot­steps fal­ter,
Who in love will then abide?
Who will give me grace suf­fi­cient,
Who will be my faith­ful guide?


Who, when twi­light sha­dows ga­ther,
Bids me on His bo­som hide,
Till I wake in realms of glo­ry,
There to meet my faith­ful guide?
