“The Lord is my Shepherd,” how precious the word! He’ll lead in green pastures, His promise is heard. “Beside the still waters”&emdash;what comfort and rest! What peace there is found upon Jesus’ breast.
His “goodness and mercy,” each day may you prove, His comforting presence, His infinite love! With richest compassions, each morning anew, May multiplied mercies be showered on you!
“My cup runneth over,” His grace so abounds, That fullest enjoyment in Jesus is found. “The Lord is my portion,” this may your soul say, And you will be happy each step of the way.
SCRIPTURE PROMISES FOR THE NEW YEAR
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.Psalm 23
