Original Key: Eb


Verse 1:
              E♭        B♭sus4   E♭
The Lord's my shepherd, I'll not want;
                   A♭/C     B♭sus4  B♭
He makes me lie in pastures green,
            A♭     B♭sus4   B♭7   E♭   A♭/C
He leads me by the still,   still wa - ters,
    Fm7         B♭sus4  B♭7 E♭
His goodness re-stores  my  soul.
Chorus:
           E♭       B♭sus4   E♭
And I will trust in You     alone,
                    A♭/C   B♭sus4 B♭
And I will trust in you   alone,
         A♭      B♭sus4     B♭7  E♭      A♭/C
For Your endless mer  -  -  cy   follows me,
     Fm7           B♭sus4  B♭7  E♭
Your goodness will lead    me   home.
Verse 2:
             E♭      B♭sus4    E♭
He guides my ways in righteous-ness,
                  A♭/C      B♭sus4  B♭
And He anoints my head with oil;
       A♭      B♭sus4  B♭7     E♭         A♭/C
And my cup, it o   -   ver  -  flows with joy,
  Fm7          B♭sus4  B♭7  E♭
I feast on his pure    de - lights.
Verse 3:
             E♭       B♭sus4  E♭
And though I walk the darkest path -
                    A♭/C   B♭sus4 B♭
I will not fear the evil   one,
            A♭       B♭sus4   B♭7  E♭      A♭/C
For You are with me, and      Your rod and staff
        Fm7       B♭sus4   B♭7   E♭
Are the comfort I need     to    know.

The Lord's my shepherd, I'll not want,
He makes me lie in pastures green.
He leads me by the still, still waters,
His goodness restores my soul.

And I will trust in You alone.
And I will trust in You alone,
For Your endless mercy follows me,
Your goodness will lead me home.

(Descant)
I will trust, I will trust in You.
I will trust, I will trust in You.
Endless mercy follows me,
Goodness will lead me home.

He guides my ways in righteousness,
And He anoints my head with oil,
And my cup, it overflows with joy,
I feast on His pure delights.

And though I walk the darkest path,
I will not fear the evil one,
For You are with me, and Your rod and staff
Are the comfort I need to know.
