A Psalm of David
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall want for nothing
He makes me lie down in pleasant green pastures
He leads me beside peaceful waters
He restores my soul
He desires to lead me in the paths of justice for His Name's sake.
Though I walk in the valley overshadowed by death, I will fear no evil
For You are with me
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my oppressor
You anointed my head with oil, my cup has been full ever since.
Yes there's an evil in the world today, no it cannot be denied
And it wraps itself in holiness and it takes God for its side.
But it only knows destruction, fueled by raging hate
And it wants to drag us down with it, but this won't be our fate, no, no because ...
Only goodness and loving-kindness shall follow me all the days of my life
And then I shall reside in the House of the Lord - forever.
