Lyrics[edit]

   The LORD is my shepherd,
   I shall not be in want.
   He makes me lie down in green pastures,
   he leads me beside quiet waters,
   he restores my soul.
   He guides me in paths of righteousness
   for his name's sake.
   Even though I walk
   through the valley of the shadow of death,
   I will fear no evil,
   for you are with me;
   your rod and your staff,
   they comfort me.
   
   You prepare a table before me
   in the presence of my enemies.
   You anoint my head with oil;
   my cup overflows.
   
   Surely goodness and love will follow me
   all the days of my life,
   and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
   forever.
   
   ..we, the children, are seeds of the future.....
   cultivated in a world landscaped by our elders.
   Plant us in secure foundations...
   we root with stability.
   Shower us with praise and understanding......
   we sprout with confidence.
   Let rays of love shine upon us....
   we bloom with happiness.
   Give us this......
   you'll grow beautiful flowers.
   Otherwise....you'll grow nothing but weeds.....
