The Lord is My Shepherd
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.
Yes, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; they rod and they 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
