Auxilium meum a Domino
The LORD is my shepherd I shall not want
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures
He leadeth me beside the still waters
He restoreth my soul
He leadeth 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 anoitest my head with oil
My cup runneth over

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life
And I will dwell in the house
Of the Lord for ever

    General CommentNo. The war sounds are going on around him. Psalm 23 is about the worst pep talk you can give your soldiers before battle...maybe okay after battle when the fighting is over.

    Just look at how peaceful the first verse is. Laying down in green pastures, by still waters, with his God restoring his soul.

    What the song means is, even though all this death and war is surrounding him (after all, it IS the valley of the shadow of death), he knows that God will lead him out of there to a fulfilling life (cup running over, goodness and mercy following him all the days of his life, dwelling in the house of the Lord).
