Psalm 23
Psalm 23
ERIN  |  Bible Passage
Author: Scottish Psalter
Musician: Ancient Irish Church Melody

1   THE Lord's my shepherd, I'll not want.
2        He makes me down to lie
     In pastures green: he leadeth me
          The quiet waters by.

3   My soul he doth restore again;
          And me to walk doth make 
     Within the paths of righteousness,
          Even for his own name's sake.

4   Yea, though I walk in death's dark vale,
          Yet will I fear none ill:
     For thou art with me; and thy rod
          And staff me comfort still.

5   My table thou hast furnished
          In presence of my foes;
     My head thou dost with oil anoint,
          And my cup overflows.

6   Goodness and mercy all my life
          Shall surely follow me:
     And in God's house for evermore
          My dwelling-place shall be.


1 ΒΆ 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.
