                 The good Lord is my shepherd, I will never want
                 He makes me lie down in green pastures by the freedom fount
                 Beside still waters where grace and mercy flow
                 Surely love will follow wherever I may go

                 Out on the open highway, along the lonely trail
                 Surely we will overcome an' justice will prevail
                 And if I go astray in the shadow of the night
                 I know you will guide me an' lead me to the light, singin'

                 The good Lord is my shepherd, I'll fly forever free
                 Across the sands of time on back through eternity
                 Up on the highest mountain and in the darkest hollow
                 You bring good news for today an' better news for tomorrow *

* Based on Psalm 23; many if not all of the Hebrew psalms were originally set to music and many, similar to American slave anthems, were intended for socio/political motivational purposes.
