The Twenty-Third Psalm
1 The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul. He leadeth me in the paths of the righteousness for His name’s sake.
4 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.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil: my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
