Psalm 23:6
"Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever."

divider

          A pilgrim was I and awand'ring,
          In the cold night of sin I did roam,
          When Jesus the kind Shepherd found me,
          And now I am on my way home.

            Chorus
            Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me,
            All the days, all the days of my life;
            Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me,
            All the days, all the days of my life.

          He restoreth my soul when I'm weary,
          He giveth me strength day by day;
          He leads me beside the still waters,
          He guards me each step of the way.

            Chorus
            Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me,
            All the days, all the days of my life;
            Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me,
            All the days, all the days of my life.

          When I walk through the dark lonesome valley,
          My Savior will walk with me there;
          And safely His great hand will lead me,
          To the mansions He's gone to prepare.

            Chorus
            Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me,
            All the days, all the days of my life;
            Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me,
            All the days, all the days of my life.
            And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever,
            And I shall feast at the table spread for me;
            Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me,
            All the days, all the days of my life

            All the days, all the days of my life.
