    “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 restored my soul:

He leadeth me in the path of righteousness for His name 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 annoinest 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.

                                                                                            23rd Psalm
