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 forever.
