Ps. 23 (Tarwathie).png

1 The LORD is my shepherd; no want shall I know. 

2 He makes me lie down where the green pastures grow.

He leads me to rest where the calm waters flow.  

3 My wandering steps he brings back to his way, 

In straight paths of righteousness making me stay; 

And this he has done his great name to display. 

Though I walk in death's valley, where darkness is near, 

Because you are with me, no evil I'll fear; 

Your rod and your staff bring me comfort and cheer.  

In the sight of my en'mies a table you spread. 

The oil of rejoicing you pour on my head; 

My cup overflows and I'm graciously fed. 

6 So surely your covenant mercy and grace

Will follow me closely in all of my ways; 

I will dwell in the house of the LORD all my days.

Scottish Psalter (1650)


1 The LORD's my shepherd, I'll not want. 

2 He makes me down to lie

In pastures green: he leadeth me 

the quiet waters by. 

3 My soul he doth restore again; 

and me to walk doth make 

Within the paths of righteousness 

ev'n for his own name's sake. 

4 Yea, though I walk in death's dark vale, 

yet will I fear none ill: 

For thou art with me; and thy rod

and staff me comfort still. 

My table thou hast furnished 

in presence of my foes; 

My head thou dost with oil anoint, 

and my cup overflows. 

6 Goodness and mercy all my life

shall surely follow me: 

And in GOD's house for evermore

my dwelling-place shall be.
