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 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!
