Fourth Sunday in Easter
The Divine Shepherd (A Psalm of David.)
The psalm is mostly heard at funerals, because everyone seems to only focus on the fourth verse. But the psalm is a confession. It is a confession that declares commitment and trust.
1 The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters;
3 he restores my soul. He leads me in right paths for his name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff—they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
7 and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord my whole life long.
