Psalm 23

(from Day 4 Evening Prayer)

Dominus regit me

  1. THE Lord is my shepherd: therefore can I lack nothing.
  2. He shall feed me in a green pasture: and lead me forth beside the waters of comfort.
  3. He shall convert my soul: and bring me forth 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 comfort me.
  5. Thou shalt prepare a table before me against them that trouble me: thou hast anointed my head with oil, and my cup shall be full.
  6. But thy loving-kindness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
