The Lord is my Shepard

I shall not want.

He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters

He restores my soul.

He guides in the paths of righteousness for His names’s sake.

Even though I walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me;

Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

You Prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflow.

Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the House of the Lord forever
