Text

Beside the still waters, oh Father, my God,
There lead me, there feed me, there show me thy word;
There give me thy counsel, there grant me thy peace,
There make all my sorrows and wanderings cease.  

 

Beside the still waters, oh bountiful store,
I drink from their plenty and thirst nevermore;
No more I am weary when there I may rest,
And feel with thy mercy and love I am blessed.  

 

Beside the still waters, thy goodness is there,
Protects me from danger, preserves me from care;
For pain has no terror and death has no sting,
While Thou art so near me, my God and my king.
