PSALM 23

waters

 

A psalm of David.
1
The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
2
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3
he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.
4
Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,[a]I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
5
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
forever.

    I read this Psalm at my mother’s funeral, as she had requested before her death. I choked up a couple of times. I love this sung version. Thank you! ❤

      Thank you Timi. I appreciate your nomination and that you feel I am worthy but, like you, I don’t follow rules very well and don’t usually get involved in awards.

        Totally understandable, Larry. Just from having to go through the rigmarole of this one, I think that I won’t get involved in any others! 😛

    I found your blog through Timi Townsend. I used to listen to Keith Green all the time. Such a beautiful rendition. Thank you for sharing it!

      Thanks. I listen to it every day. As a child, 23 psalm was the “funeral” verse. Now I find it very uplifting

        When I truly ponder the words, and the promises in them, I am blown away by such love and care of God to us in Christ Jesus, the Great Shepherd. Thanks again!

    Very nice! I don’t know why I didn’t see this post, but maybe I wasn’t following you then?

    During my first heart attack I kept repeating this over and over while being transported to the ED…I didn’t know I was doing so. The EMT’s made a note of it. It’s funny (not funny ha ha, funny odd) that you mentioned it used to be thought the funeral psalm.
