My Shepherd Will Supply My Need

by Virgil Thomson

Note learning:

This wonderful website has SATB recordings for practice:

I. “My Shepherd will supply my need, most holy is His Name;
In pastures fresh He makes me feed, Beside the living stream.
He brings my wandering spirit back When I forsake His ways,
He leads me, for His mercy’s sake, In paths of truth and grace.”

II. “When I walk through the shades of death thy presence is my stay;
One word of thy supporting breath Drives all my fears away.
Thy hand, in sight of all my foes, Doth still my table spread;
My cup with blessings overflows, Thine oil anoints my head.”

III. “The sure provisions of my God Attend me all my days;
O may Thy house be my abode, And all my work be praise!
There would I find a settled rest, While others go and come;
No more a stranger, or a guest, But like a child at home.”
