Bible Ref: Psalms 23
Music & Lyrics: A. Gilligan, Cathy Gehr
Lead Vocal: Jim Rudow


The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:

Chorus 1:
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness
For His Name's sake.
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness
For His Name's sake.

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.
Thou preparest a table before me
In the presence of mine enemies:
Thou annointest my head with oil;
My cup runneth over.

Chorus 2:
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life:
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

[Repeat Chorus 2]

Forever, forever.
