Green Pastures 

B                         E
Trouble and trials often betray those
B                         F#
On  in the weary body to stray
              B                    E
But we shall walk beside the still waters
               B       F#          B
With the good shepherd leading the way


B                                         E
Those who have strayed were sought by the Master
            B                     F#
He who once gave His life for the sheep
            B                   E
Out on the mountain still He is seaching
              B    F#       B
Bringing them in forever to keep


B                              E   
Going up home to live in green pastures
               B                  F#
Where we shall live and die never more
         B                    E
Even the Lord will be in that number
              B            F#       B
When we shall reach   that heavenly shore

SOLO

B                               E
We will not heed the voice of a stranger
             B               F#
For he would lead us all  to despair
          B                   E
Following on with Jesus our savior
             B          F#         B
We shall all reach that country so fair


B                              E   
Going up home to live in green pastures
               B                  F#
Where we shall live and die never more
         B                    E
Even the Lord will be in that number
              B            F#       B
When we shall reach   that heavenly shore
