Psalm words

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,
       ev'n 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.
