The Bird's Song
Language: English  after the Latin 
The Lord is my shepherd: therefore can I lack nothing.
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.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
