The Lord Is My Shepherd

The Lord is my shepherd,

I shall not want.

In verdant pastures

he gives me repose;

Beside restful waters he leads me;

He refreshes my soul.

He guides me in right paths

for his name's sake.

Even though I walk

in the valley of darkness

I fear no evil;

For you are at my side

With your rod and your staff

that give me courage.

You spread the table before me

in the sight of my foes;

You anoint my head with oil;

my cup overflows.

Only goodness and kindness follow me

All the days of my life;

And I shall dwell

in the house of the Lord

forever.

- Psalm 23
