The Lord is my shepherd; I shall want nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
and leads me beside the waters of peace;
he renews life within me,
and for his name's sake guides me in the right path.
Even though I walk through a valley dark
as death I fear no evil, for thou art wit thy
staff and thy crook are my comfort.
Thou spreadest a table for me sight of my enemies;
thou hast richly bathed my head with oil,
my cup runs over.
Goodness and love unfailing, these will follow me all
the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of
the Lord my whole life long.
