The Lord Is My Shepherd

Resting in the Peace and Power of Psalm 23

  • reading group guide
Bestselling author Robert J. Morgan explores the rich meaning and transcendent comfort of the world’s best-known and most-loved poem: Psalm 23.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads 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 You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.


You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life.
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.


Let these gentle words soak into your soul and fill you with the peace you long for.
