No. 28-2. My Shepherd.,
Firut or Second Tune-
I The Lord is my Shepherd, no want shall I know;
I feed in green pastures, safe folded I rest;
He leadeth my soul where the still waters flow,
Restores me when wand'rng, redeems when oppress'd.
2 Thro' the valley and shadow of death tho' I stray,
Since Thou art my Guardian, no evil I fear;
Thy rod shall defend fme, Thy staff be my stay;
No harm can befell with my Comforter near.
3 In the midst of affliction my table is spread;
With blessings          my cup rineth o'er;
With perfume and oil Tlou annointest my head;
0 what shall I ask of Thy providenee more?
4 Let goodnes and mercy, my boun ifulGod,
Still follow my steps till I meet Thee above.
I seek by the path which my fore-fathers trod,
Thro' the landf their sojourn, Thy kingdom of love.

Firgt or Sleejzd Ten
1 Delay not, delay not, 0 sinner, draw near,
The Waters of life are now fwing for thee,
No     e is demanded, the avior is here,
Redemption is purchased, salvation is free.
2 Delay not, delay not, why longer abse
The love and compassion of Jesus, thy God?
A fountain is open, how canst thou refuse
To wash and be cleansed in His pabid6ning blood?
3 Delay not, delay not, 0 sinner, to come,
For Mercy still fingers and cales thee today:
Her voice is not heard in the vale-of the tomb;
Her message, unheeded, will son paw away,
4 Delay pot, delay not, the Spirit of gans
Long grieved and resisted, may take his sadiligK
And leave thee in darkness to finish thy race,
To sink in the gloom of eternity's eight.
