A paraphrase of Psalm 23

 

God,

You are enough for us;

you give us rest in soft fields

and beside whispering streams;

you restore and renew us,

and lead us into life-giving ways;

 

When death and evil come close to us,

you carry us through,

you protect and comfort us;

when others seek to do us harm,

your grace uplifts and provides for us

in public view;

you fill us with your strength

and we enjoy overflowing abundance;

 

We have confidence that your goodness and compassion

will fill our days,

and we will stay immersed in your life and presence

forever.

 

Amen.
