Tune: C. F. Letson, 1869
Lyrics: Joseph Addison, 1712
Meter: Long Particular Meter (8,8,8,8,8,8)
The Lord my pasture shall prepare,
And feed me with a shepherd's care;
His presence shall my wants supply,
And guard me with a watchful eye;
My noon-day walks He shall attend,
And all my midnight hours defend.

With gloomy horrors overspread,
Though in the paths of death I tread;
My steadfast heart shall fear no ill,
For Thou, O Lord, art with me still;
Thy friendly crook shall give me aid,
And guide me through the dreadful shade.
