With the Lord as my shepherd,
I shall not be in want.
In green pastures he will let me lie;
by still waters he will lead me.
He will restore my soul;
he will guide me in ways of salvation for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk in the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
for you will be with me;
our rod and your crook will comfort me.
You have prepared a table before me,
a sign to my foes;
you have anointed my head with oil;
my cup runs over.
Truly, goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall come home to the house of the Lord for ever.
Translation by John Eaton.
