CHEROKEE 23RD PSALM

English

My Shepherd is The Lord, I not wanting shall be;
Green pastures for me to lie down He makes.
Beside still waters He leads me.

My health He restores for His Nameís sake;
On the paths of righteousness He leads me.
The valley of the Shadow of Death I walk,
Evil I will not fear, You are with me.

Your rod and Your staff give me comfort.
My enemies near my presence a table You prepare for them;
My head with oil You annoint; My cup overflows.


All the days of my life goodness and mercy shall follow me,
The Lordís House I will dwell in forever.
