Psalm 23

“You call us to the
valley
not to destroy
but to bless”

You lead us into shadows
unto our death

Surely goodness and mercy
says he
shall follow thee

All my days
indeed be blessed

Dwelling with God
forever
surely goodness
indeed.


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.
