PSALM 23




The Lord's my shepherd, I'll not want;
He makes me down to lie
In pastures green; He leadeth me
The quiet waters by.


My soul He doth restore again,
And me to walk doth make
Within the paths of righteousness,
E'en for His own names sake.


Yea, though I walk through death's dark vale,
Yet will I fear no ill;
For Thou art with me, and Thy rod
And staff me comfort still.


My table Thou hast furnishèd
In presence of my foes;
My head Thou dost with oil anoint,
And my cup overflows.


Goodness and mercy all my life
Shall surely follow me;
And in God's house for evermore
My dwelling-place shall be.


---Alternative verses---


My Shepherd is the living Lord
And He that doth me feed;
How can I, then, lack anything
Whereof I stand in need?


In pastures green and flourishing
He makes me down to lye:
And after drives me to the streames
Which run most pleasantly.


And when I feele my selfe neere lost,
Then home He me doth take,
Conducting me in His right paths,
Even for His owne Names sake.


And though I were even at death's doore,
Yet would I fear none ill;
Thy rod, Thy staff, do comfort me,
And Thou art with me still.


Thou hast my table richly stor'd
In presence of my foe;
My head with oile Thou dost anoint,
My cup doth overflow.


Thy grace and mercy all my daies
Shall surely follow me;
And ever in the house of God,
My dwelling place shall be.
