Psalm 23, The Lord is my Shepherd

Psalm 23, is also known as “The Lord is my Shepherd” and is a common reading at Christian funerals. The Psalm is about the Lord guiding us into death and giving us the opportunity to spend eternity in the house of the Lord.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the 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 for ever.
