"The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. In verdant pastures he gives me repose; Beside restful waters he leads me; He refreshes my soul. He guides me in right paths for his name's sake. Even though I walked in the dark valley I fear no evil; for you are at my side with your rod and staff that give me courage. You spread the table before me in the sight of my foes; You anoint my head with oil; My cup overflows. Only goodness and kindness follow me all the days of my life; And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord for years to come."
