Psalm 23

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd, I will have all I need.

A good shepherd takes care of his sheep.


He brings them to rest

in green meadows,

and he leads them to drink

cool water from quiet streams.


God takes care of me just as well.


He shows me the right way to go,

so all the world will see

that God is good.


A good shepherd watches over his sheep.


He reaches out with his staff

and pulls them out of trouble,

and with his rod

he protects them from danger.


So even when things look dark and scary,

I will not be afraid,

because God is with me.


When trouble seems to be all around,

God prepares a feast for me.

I am his special guest,

and his blessings overflow.


God's goodness and forgiveness

will be with me all of my life,

and I will live with him forever.
