Scripture: Psalm 23
Theme: Psalms

    My shepherd is the Lord, nothing indeed shall I want.

1.  The Lord is my Shepherd, 
    I will never be in need.
    In the fresh green meadow my Shepherd 
    will make me lie down,
    and to the still water will guide me, 
    find refreshment for my spirit.

2.  Guiding me to greener pastures,
    You are true to Your word.
    Though I walk through the darkest of shadows, 
    what danger could I fear?
    You will always go with me,
    Your rod and staff will lead me.

3.  You spread a table before me,
    before all my foes.
    You anoint my head with oil,
    fill my cup to overflowing.

4.  Surely goodness and kindness wait for me
    every day of my life.
    In the house of the Lord will I live,
    forever and forever.
