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.
