Original text and translations
Hymn 795 (Psalm 23:2)
Bear me to the sacred scene,
The silent streams and pastures green!
Where the crystal waters shine,
Springing up with life divine!
Where the flock of Israel feed,
Guided by their shepherd’s tread,
And every sheep delights to hide
Under the tree where Jesus died!
