“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside
still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though
I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I 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 overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I
shall dell in the house of the Lord forever.
