The Lord's my shepherd
There are two well-known tunes associated with the hymn:
- Crimond CM a melody by Jessie Seymour Irvine (1836 - 1887)
- Brother James Air CM a melody by James Leith Macbeth Bain
The Lord's my shepherd, I'll not want. He makes me down to lie in pastures green. He leadeth me the quiet waters by. My soul he doth restore a gain, and me to walk doth make within the paths of righteousness, e'en for his own name's sake. Yea, though I walk in death's dark vale, yet will I fear no ill. For though art with me, and thy rod and staff me comfort still. My table though hast furnished in presence of my foes: my head though dost with oil anoint, and my cup over flows. Goodness and mercy all my life shall surely follow me. And in God's house for ever more my dwelling place shall be.
