This is a Psalm of David
1 GOD, my Shepherd!
I don't need a thing.
2 You have bedded me down in lush meadows,
You find me quiet pools to drink from.
3 True to Your Word,
You let me catch my breath
and send me in the right direction.
4 Even when the way goes through
I'm not afraid
when You walk at my side.
Your trusty Shepherd's crook
makes me feel secure.
5 You serve me a six-course dinner
right in front of my enemies.
You revive my drooping head;
my cup brims with blessing.
6 Your beauty and love chase after me
every day of my life.
I'm back home in the house of GOD
for the rest of my life.
