1 The LORD is my shepherd; no want shall I know.
2 He makes me lie down where the green pastures grow;
He leads me to rest where the calm waters flow.
3 My wandering steps he brings back to his way,
In straight paths of righteousness making me stay;
And this he has done his great name to display.
4 Though I walk in death’s valley, where darkness is near,
Because you are with me, no evil I’ll fear;
Your rod and your staff bring me comfort and cheer.
5 In the sight of my en’mies a table you spread.
The oil of rejoicing you pour on my head;
My cup overflows and I’m graciously fed.
6 So surely your covenant mercy and grace
Will follow me closely in all of my ways;
I will dwell in the house of the LORD all my days.
