23rd Psalm (adapted)

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

The Lord maketh me to lie down in green pastures, and leadeth me beside the still waters.

The Lord restoreth my soul, and leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for The Lord’s name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
