I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon
the name of the Lord.
I will pay my vows unto the Lord, yea, in the presence of all his people,
In the courts of the Lord's house,
In the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the Lord.

THE SHEPHERD GOD

Isaiah xi


OThou that tellest good tidings to Zion, get thee up on a high mountain;
O thou that tellest good tidings to Jerusalem, lift up thy voice with strength;
Lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold, your God!
Behold, the Lord will come as a mighty one, and his arm will rule for him:
Behold, his reward is with him, and his recompense before him. He will feed his flock like a shepherd.
He will gather the lambs in his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and will gently lead those that have their young.

Psalm xxiii


THE Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he leadeth me beside still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He guideth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil
For thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
Thou hast anointed my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and lovingkindness shall follow me all the days of my life;
And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
