PSALM XXIII

Eternal Love, our Father, is my Shepherd;
No want nor need forever shall I know.
In pastures green hath Love my rest provided;
By waters still doth Love my pathway show.
Love heals my soul; in righteous paths Love leads me;
And where Love leads, for His name's sake I go.

Though through death's vale I walk, I'll fear no evil;
Love's rod and staff forever comfort me.
My cup is full; my head with oil anointed;
My table laid for all my foes to see.
Goodness and mercy shall forever follow,
And ever in the house of Love I'll be.

(Written to be sung to "Finlandia" by Jan Sibelius)
