    The Lord Is My Shepherd A Psalm of David. 23

     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 will 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 dwell in the house of the Lord

    forever.



    Joseph Francis Kruer
