THE LORD ID MY SHEPHERED , THE LORD IS MY SHEPHED
MY FRIEND AND HELPER, I SHALL NOT WANT
HE'S THERE TO GUIDE ME , STANDING BESIDE ME
THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD, I SHALL NOT WANT

SPOKEN:THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD, I SHALL NOT WANT
HE MAKETH ME TO LIE IN GREEN PASTURES
HE LEADETH ME BESIDE STILL WATERS
HE RESTORETH MY SOUL
{I SHALL NOT WANT...}
HE LEADETH ME IN THE PATHS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS FOR HIS NAME' SAKE
AND YEA, THOUGH I WALK THROUGH THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH.
I WILL FEAR NO EVIL : FOR THOU ART ME;
THY ROD AND THY STAFF,THEY COMFORT ME.
[I SHALL NOT WANT...]
THOU PREPAREST A TABLE BEFORE ME IN THE PRESENT OF MINE ENEMIES;
THOU ANNOINTH MY HEAD WITH OIL; MY CUP RUNNETH OVER.
SURELY GOODNESS AND MERRY SHALL FOLLOW ME ALL THE DAYS OF MY LIFE.
AND I SHALL NOT DWELL IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD FOREVER

    General CommentHA ! Site site overseers couldn't even find the lyrics to post here !

    How hard is it to find the words to the 23rd Psalm? Duh...

    Dolly you are so wonderful.
    I love your voice almost as much as I love the myriad permutations of your Country-Western Great Smoky Mountains face. You blow away 90 per cent of the depressing Rock'n'Roll whiners and trash-talking posers with ONE BEAUTIFULLY DELIVERED LINE from one of your marvelous songs.
    I especially love hearing your voice proclaim God's holy and absolute truth from the Psalms of David.
    Jesus is the Good Shepherd, people. There is salvation to be found in NO OTHER NAME. Read God's Word and receive the free gift of eternal life. Thank you Jesus. Thank you Dolly. Hallelujah.

    Lyric CorrectionTHE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD , THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD
    MY FRIEND AND HELPER, I SHALL NOT WANT
    HE'S THERE TO GUIDE ME, STANDING BESIDE ME
    THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD, I SHALL NOT WANT

    Spoken (Psalm 23):
    THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD, I SHALL NOT WANT
    HE MAKETH ME TO LIE IN GREEN PASTURES
    HE LEADETH ME BESIDE STILL WATERS
    HE RESTORETH MY SOUL

    HE LEADETH ME IN THE PATHS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS FOR HIS NAME' SAKE
    AND 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 MERRY SHALL FOLLOW ME ALL THE DAYS OF MY LIFE
    AND I SHALL DWELL IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD FOREVER.
