The Twenty-Third Psalm
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in
the paths of righteousness for his name's
sake. Yea, though I walk through the
valley of the shadow of death. I will fear
no evil: for thou art with me: Thy rod and
thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a
table before me in the presence of mine
enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil;
my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and
mercy shall follow me all the days of
my life. And I will dwell in the house
of the Lord for ever.
