11. The Lord's my shepherd

1 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.

2 My soul he doth restore again
and me to walk doth make
within the paths of righteousness,
even for his own name’s sake.

3 Yea, though I walk in death’s dark vale,
yet will I fear none ill;
for thou art with me, and thy rod
and staff me comfort still.

4 My table thou hast furnished
in presence of my foes;
my head thou dost with oil anoint,
and my cup overflows.

5 Goodness and mercy all my life
shall surely follow me
and in God’s house forevermore
my dwelling place shall be.

1 Jésus est mon divin berger,
réjouis-toi mon âme,
seul il délivre du danger,
tout en moi le réclame.

2 Non, je ne manquerai de rien,
car, ô grâce infinie,
Jésus est l'ami, le gardien,
en qui je me confie.

3 Jour après jour, il me conduit
dans ses verts pâturages,
de son amour il me nourrit
sous ses divins ombrages.

4 Je ne craindrai donc aucun mal,
quand au cours du voyage
il me faudra, du sombre val,
franchir le noir passage!

5 Toujours sa grâce et son amour
me suivront sur la terre,
et tout sera, dans son séjour:
paix, gloire, amour, lumière.
