He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.@Psalm 23:2–3

Mary S. Leonard, 1908.

F. A. Clark (🔊 pdf nwc).

Into the valleys of blessing
My shepherd leads;
Peace is my spirit possessing,
My soul He feeds.
Pastures so green are around me,
Waters of life shall flow;
Fairest of flowers surround me,
Ever I onward go.


My shepherd leads along the way,
Kept by His care I cannot stray;
In tender love, to realms above,
My shepherd leads me home!

Into the ways that are weary
My shepherd leads;
Dark tho’ the skies be and dreary,
He knows my needs.
Heavy the load I am bearing,
Love hath my pathway planned;
Trusting, I’m still forward faring,
Led by my shepherd’s hand.


Into the land all immortal
My shepherd leads;
Unto the glorious portal
My way He heeds.
Mansions of heavenly splendor
Wait me when I shall come.
Led by my shepherd so tender
Unto my Father’s home.
