The Lord is my shepherd.
Today we meditate on the 23rd Psalm. It is so personal, so memory invoking.
I invite you to read it out loud, and then close your eyes and listen
to Rutter's beautiful composition.
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters;
he restores my soul. He leads me in right paths for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil; for you are
with me; your rod and your staff— they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint
my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I
shall dwell in the house of the Lord my whole life long.
