For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in him may have eternal life, and I shall raise him on the last day ----

John 6:40

Psalm 23

The Lord, Shepherd and Host


The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I lack.

In green pastures he makes me lie down; to still waters he leads me; he restores my soul.

He guides me along right paths for the sake of your name.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you with me;  your rod and your staff comfort me.

You set a table before me in front of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

Indeed, goodness and mercy will pursue me all the days of my life; I will dwell in the house of the Lord for endless days.
