Beside the Still Waters


In shady green pastures so rich and so sweet, God leads His dear children along;

Where the waters cool flow bathes the weary one’s feet God leads His dear children along.

Refrain: Some through the waters, some thro’ 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 the darkest night, God leads His dear children along.

Tho’ sorrows befall us and Satan 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.

Refrain: Some through the waters, some thro’ 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.
