(To the tune of “Will You Go, Lassie, Go?”)
I will never lack a thing,
For the Lord is my shepherd,
He who clothes little flowers,
And gives food to all the field-birds.
I will never lack a thing.
He will give me peace to rest,
Like a lush and blooming pasture,
And a crystal cool water,
A calm stream to take my leisure.
He will give me peace to rest.
He will well refresh my soul,
Make me walk with the righteous,
For His own reputation,
Fills my mind with thoughts sagacious.
He will well refresh my soul.
I need never fear at all,
Though I tread death-like valleys,
For the Lord God is with me,
And His rod and staff shall cheer me.
I need never fear at all.
