             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

             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.
