Easy Play Psalm 23
2014 BOOK OF PRAISE OF THE CANADIAN REFORMED CHURCHES
1. The LORD’s my shepherd. He in love defends me;
I shall not want. In pastures green he tends me,
makes me lie down, his care and mercy showing;
leads me where peaceful streams are gently flowing.
He for his name’s sake surely will restore me;
in paths of righteousness he goes before me.
2. Though by its gloom and shadows overtaken,
in death’s dark valley I am not forsaken;
I fear no evil: you are there beside me.
Through all the depths of sorrow you will guide me.
You comfort me, O God of my salvation;
your rod and staff, they are my consolation.
3. Your bounteous table you prepare before me,
and all my foes look on while you restore me.
My head you have with soothing oil anointed;
my cup runs over, for you have appointed
goodness and mercy to forsake me never,
and in your house, LORD, I will dwell forever.
