Page 65 - I want beside ? 2 He leads me to the place Where heavenly pasture grows, Where living waters gently pass, And full salvation flows. 3 If e'er I go astray, He doth my soul reclaim ; And guides me in His own right way, For His most holy name. 4 While He affords His aid, I cannot yield to fear ; Though I should walk through death's dark shade, My Shepherd's with me there.
Page 160 - O glorious hour ! O blest abode ! I shall be near and like my God, And flesh and sin no more control The sacred pleasures of the soul.
