THE TWENTY-THIRD PSALM

BY:  ADOLPH E. KNOCH

THE SHEPHERD PSALM

Jehovah is my Shepherd,

So I am wanting naught.

He’s causing me to recline

In verdant oases.

 

To restful wat’ring places

He is conducting me.

My soul He is restoring–

[My soul restoreth He!]

 

In righteous rounds He guides me

Because of His [own] name.

E’en though I’m walking in

The shade of death ravine,

 

I am not fearing evil,

For thou dost stand by me.

Thy club and crook console me–

[Thy club and crook console!]

 

Before me thou’r’t arranging

Forage that fronts my foes.

Thou sleek’st my head with oil.

My cup doth satiate.

 

Yea, good and kindness follow

For all my livelong days.

And in Jehovah’s house

I dwell to length of days!

A. E. K.
