"The Lord is my shepherd;/I shall not want,/ He maketh me to lie down in green pastures;/ He re-storeth 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 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 cap 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."
