F                 Gm  F   Gm   F    C    F         
The Lord’s my shepherd, I’ll not want,
            G                      C
He makes me down to lie,
F      Gm     C
In pastures green.
F    Gm      F          Gm   F   C   F
He leadeth me the quiet waters by.


                      II
F                 Gm  F   Gm   F    C    F         
My soul he doth restore again,
            G                      C
And me to walk doth make
F      Gm     C
Within the paths of righteousness,
F    Gm      F          Gm   F   C   F
E’en for his won name’s sake.

F                 Gm  F   Gm   F    C    F         
Yea, though I walk in death’s dark vale,
            G                      C
Yet will I fear no ill
F      Gm     C
For thou art with me, and thy rod
F    Gm      F          Gm   F   C   F
And staff me comfort still.
  
                    IV
F                 Gm  F   Gm   F    C    F         
My table thou hast furnished
            G                      C
In presence of my foes,
F      Gm     C
My head thou dost with oil anoint,
F    Gm      F          Gm   F   C   F
And my cup overflows.

                    V
F                 Gm  F   Gm   F    C    F         
Goodness and mercy all my life
            G                      C
Shall surely follow me.
F      Gm     C
And in God’s house for evermore
F    Gm      F          Gm   F   C   F
My dwelling place shall be.
