God Alone may Lead my Spirit (Psalm 23)

God alone may lead my Spirit tar away from want and fear, For the Lord is my true shepherd And I know that the Lord is near. 1 I am led beside God's peaceful water And I sleep in the arms of the earth. Who guides me along paths of honour? Who refreshes my life from birth?
This hymn by American liturgist and composer Tom Conry (b 1951) is based on Psalm 23, although it is not a direct translation of the original text.

Lyrics

The lyrics are copyright so cannot be reproduced here.   The song starts with a four-line chorus, and this is repeated after each of the four verses. A rough outline is:
Chorus:
God alone may lead my spirit
Far away from want and fear,
For the Lord is my true shepherd
And I know that the Lord is near.

1 I am led beside God's peaceful water ...

2 Though I wander the valley of dying ...

3 You have spread your banquet before me ...

4 Only mercy and goodness pursue me ...
