Psalm 23

A psalm of David
1 God, you are my shepherd— I want nothing more. 2 You let me lie down in green meadows; you lead me beside still waters: 3 you refresh my soul. You guide me to lush pastures for the sake of your Name. 4 Even if I’m surrounded by shadows of Death, I fear no danger, for you are with me. Your rod and your staff— they give me courage. 5 You spread a table for mein the presence of my enemies, and you anoint my head with oil— my cup overflows! 6 Only goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in your house, Creator god, for days without end.



Grateful Dead written by Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter

If my words did glow

with the gold of sunshine

And my tunes were played

on the harp unstrung

Would you hear my voice

come through the music

Would you hold it near

as it were your own?


It’s a hand-me-down,

the thoughts are broken

Perhaps they’re better left unsung

I don’t know, don’t really care

Let there be songs to fill the air


Ripple in still water

When there is no pebble tossed

Nor wind to blow


Reach out your hand

if your cup be empty

If your cup is full may it be again



Let it be known

there is a fountain

That was not made by the hands of men

There is a road,

no simple highway

Between the dawn and the dark of night

And if you go

no one may follow

That path is for your steps alone


Ripple in still water

When there is no pebble tossed

Nor wind to blow


You who choose

to lead must follow

But if you fall

you fall alone

If you should stand

then who’s to guide you?

If I knew the way

I would take you home
