April 26 Hymn Lyrics:
MY SHEPHERD IS THE LIVING GOD
(AKA “My Shepherd Will Supply My Need”)
My shepherd is the living God, I therefore nothing need;
In pastures fair, near pleasant streams you settle me to feed.
You bring my wandering spirit back when I forsake your ways,
And lead me for you mercy's sake in paths of truth and grace.
When I walk through the shades of death, your presence is my stay;
A word of your supporting breath drives all my fear away.
Your hand, in sight of all my foes, does still my table spread;
My cup with blessing overflows, your oil anoints my head.
The sure provisions of my God attend me all my days;
O may your house be my abode, and all my work be praise.
There would I find a settled rest, while others come and go
No more a stranger or a guest, but like a child at home.
BECAUSE HE LIVES
God sent His son, they called Him Jesus; He came to love, heal and forgive;
He lived and died to buy my pardon,
An empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives!
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone;
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living,
Just because He lives!
