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.
