Thomas Tomkins: My Shepherd is the living Lord

My shepherd is the living Lord
nothing therefore I need:
In pastures fair, with waters calm
he sets me for to feed.

He did convert and glad my soul,
and brought my mind in frame:
To walk in paths of righteousness,
For his most holy name.

Through all my life thy favour is,
so frankly showed to me:
That in thy house for ever more
my dwelling place shall be.

-Thomas Sternhold The Whole Book of Psalms Collected into English Meter, 1562
