Twenty Third Psalm 7-15-13


"The Lord is my Shepherd"
who I will heed.
"I shall not want."
I shall not 'need'.

"He maketh me to lie down in green pastures."
He brings me peace.
I shall not want.
All burdens cease.

"He leadeth me beside the still waters."
For He calmed them.
I shall not want.
How loved I am.

"He restoreth my soul."
I now can see.
I shall not want
He graces me.

"He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake."
- straight and narrow.
I shall not want.
He lights shadows.

"Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil,"
I fear nothing.
I shall not want
for anything.

"For thou art with me,"
my Protector.
I shall not want.
I had before.

"Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me,"
They soothe my soul.
I shall not want.
He's in control.

"Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies."
I shall not hate.
I shall not want.
My God is great.

"Thou anointest my head with oil, my cup runneth over,"
His blessings last.
I shall not want.
His love is vast.

"Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life;"
even in prison.
I shall not want
for Christ is risen.

"and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever."
I am in awe.
I shall not want.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Psalm 23 King James Version (KJV)

1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul:
he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4 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.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
