Psalm 23

Divide the class into two parts - indicated here as left and right.

Left: The Lord is my shepherd, 

Right: I shall not want. 

Left: He makes me lie down in green pastures; 

Right: he leads me beside still waters; 

All: he restores my soul. 

Right: He leads me in right paths for his name's sake. 

Left: Even though I walk through the darkest valley, 

All: I fear no evil; 

Right: I fear no evil; 

Left: I fear no evil; 

Right: for you are with me; 

Left: your rod and your staff --

Right: they comfort me. 

Left: You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; 

Right: you anoint my head with oil; 

Left: my cup overflows. 

Right: my cup overflows. 

All: my cup overflows! 

Left: Surely 

Right: Surely 

Left: Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me 

Right: all the days of my life, 

Left: and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord my whole life long. 

Right: and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord my whole life long. 

All: and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord my whole life long!
