"Green Pastures" as written by Steve J. Hindalong, E. Brown Bannister, Marc Byrd and Anna Christina Faulk....
Troubles and trials
Often betray us
Tempting the wearing
Body to stray
But we shall all meet
'Side the still waters
With the Good Shepherd
Leading the way

Those who have strayed were
Sought by the Master
He who once gave His
Life for the sheep
Out on the mountain
Now He is searching
Bringing them in
Forever to keep

Going up home to
Live in green pastures
Where we shall live and
Die nevermore
Even the Lord will
Be in that number
When we shall reach that
Heavenly Shore

We will not heed the
Voice of the stranger
For he would lead us
On to despair
Following on with
Jesus our Savior
We shall all reach that
Country so fair

Going up home to
Live in green pastures
Where we shall live and
Die nevermore
Even the Lord will
Be in that number
When we shall reach that
Heavenly Shore

    General CommentThe live Down from the Mountain version is incredible. The song recounts some of the basic themes of Christianity.
