Shady, Green Pastures...




In shady, green pastures, so rich and so sweet,
God leads His dear children along;
Where the water’s cool flow bathes the weary one’s feet,
God leads His dear children along.


Some through the waters, some through the flood,
Some through the fire, but all through the blood;
Some through great sorrow, but God gives a song,
In the night season and all the day long.


Sometimes on the mount where the sun shines so bright,
God leads His dear children along;
Sometimes in the valley, in darkest of night,
God leads His dear children along.


Though sorrows befall us and evils oppose,
God leads His dear children along;
Through grace we can conquer, defeat all our foes,
God leads His dear children along.


Away from the mire, and away from the clay,
God leads His dear children along;
Away up in glory, eternity’s day,
God leads His dear children along.

    I don't believe I've ever heard (of) that song before... but I really like it! Thanks for sharing!=)
    God bless you!

  • One of my favorites! What a sweet assurance to know beyond a shadow of a doubt that every circumstance is ordered by a loving Heavenly Father who only desires our best! I've never heard that last verse before - or maybe it just doesn't sound familiar because the cd I most listen to it on doesn't include it....

    Hey, I recognize the photo too! ;-) In fact, it's part of my new screensaver along with 70+ other photos from last weekend! Sweet memories!
