The 23rd Psalm – It Is Well, a song by Evie

tune It Is Well with My Soul (UMH 37)

The Lord is my Shep-herd, nothing shall I want –
in lush pastures green I lay down –
by still waters led – O, my soul is restored!
By my Shepherd in right paths I’m led.
It is well (it is well) with my soul (with my soul),
it is well, it is well with my soul.

E’en though through dark valleys I walk, I shall not fear.
No evil shall take hold of me.
For you are with me, and your rod and your staff,
O my Shepherd, they com-fort me.
It is well (it is well) with my soul (with my soul),
it is well, it is well with my soul.

A table before me, my Shepherd, you prepare –
my enemies gathered around.
My head you anoint with the salve of your oil,
O my Shepherd, my cup overflows.
It is well (it is well) with my soul (with my soul),
it is well, it is well with my soul.

Your goodness and mercy shall surely follow me
for all of the days of my life,
and safe in your house, I securely shall dwell,
with my Shepherd now forevermore.
It is well (it is well) with my soul (with my soul),
it is well, it is well with my soul.
