The Lord Jesus Christ is my (Grace Marie’s) tender and loving shepherd; I shall not lack anything that I need.
He gives me rest, to lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still peaceful waters.
He restores my soul and will lift me upright when I fall.
He guides me always and brings me onto paths of righteousness when I wander
and he does this for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, the valley full of failure, sin, and despair,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort and protect me. I will hold on to you.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows with your good gifts of grace.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life, I will have all I desire for
I shall dwell in the house of the Lord with the Lord.
