For 2-part or SAB choir with organ and two optional flutes. Arranged from Bach's Cantata 208 (the Wedding Cantata - the famous "Sheep may safely graze") with a new text based on the 23rd Psalm. Also available as SATB.

Loving shepherd, comfort and guide us,
Keep us in thy tender care.
And in thy mercy stay beside us,
Safely thy lambs now gather,
Bring us in faith together,
And thy pastures now prepare.

And when I walk with darkness around me,
Thou art near and I will fear no ill.
So with thy love and kindness surround me,
Goodness and mercy bringing,
From living water springing,
Lord of Love grant me thy comfort still.
