Based on the 23rd Psalm

I wonder exactly how many hymns there are based on
the 23rd Psalm. I added my own to that probably humongous list back in the 70s:

THE LORD, HE IS MY SHEPHERD

The Lord, He is my Shepherd,
And I am fully blessed.
To green pastures He brings me,
And there He lets me rest.

The Lord, He is my Shepherd,
And His love keeps me whole.
To still waters He leads me,
And there restores my soul.

The Lord, He is my Shepherd,
And I need never fear.
His rod and staff assure me
That He is always near.

The Lord, He is my Shepherd,
He gives me all I need.
He spreads a table before me,
And there He lets me feed.

The Lord, He is my Shepherd,
And He does all things well.
To His own House He'll take me
Forevermore to dwell.

Even though I wrote these verses, this isn't my favorite hymn based on
Psalm 23. My favorite is "The King of Love My Shepherd Is".
