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 CommentI think everything in this song makes perfect sense:
    - The psalm was written by *David* the King
    - David spent probably half his life in wars, thus also hiding and running away from enemies
    - Valley of the shadow of death = War (war sounds in background)
    - "I will fear no evil; for thou art with me" (Help comes from my lord)

    This is likely in part as a reference to Dave's darkest days of struggle with drugs/demons.
    At one point he had to take a "Spiritual advisor" (pastor) on tour to help him with demons.

    I was very surprised when i first listened to this song (in a good way). This is the most famous psalm of all, even my granma's favorite.

    @dr.zaius: It's easy for people with no beliefs or with a life full of hate to mock people who have beliefs (call christians "pussy" and so on) and have found inner peace through God. Your choice but you are harming no one but yourself.
