Sheep May Safely Graze

by J. S. Bach

Sheep may safely graze and pasture In a watchful shepherd’s sight.
Sheep may safely graze and pasture, Sheep may safely graze and pasture
In a watchful shepherd’s sight, In a watchful shepherd’s sight.

Those who rule, with wisdom guiding, Bring to hearts a peace abiding,
Bless a land with joy made bright.

Bring to hearts a peace abiding, Peace abiding, Peace abiding, Peace abiding,
Bless a land with joy made bright.

OR

Like a shepherd God doth guide us Into pastures calm and blest;
Safe we lie by peaceful waters, Safe we lie by peaceful waters,
And like sheep securely rest, Safe like sheep securely rest.

Though the valley dark is growing, Clouds are gath’ring, winds are blowing,
Night and death are drawing near,

Yet no danger shall alarm me, Death and darkness ne’er can harm me,
Death and darkness ne’er can harm me, Death and darkness ne’er can harm me,
In His arms, in His arms, I feel no fear.
