Psalm xxiii. 1 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; he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's-1 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. 3 Thou preparest a table before me, in the presence of mine enemies; thou anointest
my head with oil; my | cup--runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. | A- | men. VENITE AD ME.
