Scripture Verse

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Psalm 23:1–3

Lead me through the fields of sun­shine
And the pas­tures green;
On Thy arms of love and mer­cy,
Let me ev­er lean.


Lead me, lead me,
O Thou bless­èd One;
Lead me, lead me,
Lead me gent­ly on.

Lead me, Shep­herd, through the val­leys,
Lest I go as­tray
Lead me, kind­ly Shep­herd, lead me,
To the per­fect day.


Lead me through the night’s grim sha­dows,
To the per­fect dawn
Of the day to which we’re hast’ning,
Lead me kind­ly on.
