The Twenty-Third Psalm

The Lord is my sheppherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul; He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake . . . Yea, though I walk throught 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 dewll in the house of the Lord forever. . .
