Psalm 23 - Version 6

From “ The Book of Psalms in Lowland Scotch”
by Henry Scott Riddell, London 1857


1. The Lord is my shepherd; I sallna inlak.

2. He mak’s me til lye doun in green an’ baittle gangs; he leeds me aside the quaet waters.

3. He refreschens my saul; he leeds me in the peths o’ richteousniss for his naeme’s sak’.

4. Yis, thouch I wauk throwe the vallie o’ the skaddaw o’ deaeth, I wull feaer nae ill; for thou art wi’ me; thy cruik an’ thy staffe thaye comfirt me.

5. Thou prepairist me and table in the preesince o’ mine enemies; thou anaintist my heaed wi’ oolie; my cupp rins ower.

6. Shurelie guidniss an’ mercie sall follo me a’ the dayes o’ my life; an’ I wull dwall in the hous o’ the Lord foriver.
