(Psalm 23)

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want;
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside still waters;
He restoreth my soul.
He leadeth me in paths of righteousness
For His name's 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 anointest 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

Psalm 23

Let us remember that death is not the end,
but the beginning. As the sun sets in our
world, the sun is just rising for others.
