The Lord is my Shepard; I shall not want. He maketh me to like 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 through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: For though are with me Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.Thou preparest a table before me. In the presence of mine enemies: Thou anoitest 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!
