Psalm 23

The Lord to me a shepherd is,
   want therefore shall not I:
He in the folds of tender grass,
   doth cause me down to lie:
To waters calm me gently leads
   restore my soul doth he:
He doth in paths of righteousness
   for his name's sake lead me.
Yea, though in valley of death's shade
   I walk, none ill I'll fear:
Because thou art with me, thy rod,
   and staff my comfort are.
For me a table thou hast spread,
   in presence of my foes:
Thou dost anoint my head with oil;
   my cup it overflows.
Goodness and mercy surely shall
   all my days follow me:
And in the Lord's house I shall dwell
   so long as days shall be.
