Psalm 23: "The Lord Is My Shepherd"

Spiritual comfort in difficult times.

Jesus, the Good Shepherd Clip Art1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want.

2 He makes me lie down in green pastures;
he leads me beside still waters;

3 he restores my soul.
He leads me in right paths for his name's sake.

4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley,
I fear no evil;
for you are with me; your rod and your staff--
they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD my whole life long.
