"The Lord is my Shepherd, I have everything I need. He lets me rest in green Meadow. He leads me beside peaceful streams. He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to His Name... surely His goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever"-Psalm 23
