Rest Here for a Moment


God is my shepherd;

I have everything I need.

She lets me rest in fields of green grass

and leads me to quiet pools of fresh water.

She gives me new strength.

She guides me in the right paths,

as she has promised.

Even if I go through the deepest darkness,

I will not be afraid, God,

for you are with me.

Your shepherd’s staff protects me.

You prepare a banquet for me,

where all my enemies can see me;

you welcome me as an honored guest

and fill my cup to the brim.

I know that your goodness and love

will be with me all my life;

and your house will be my home

as long as I live.


(Psalm 23)
