Psalm Prayer for Psalm 23

Be our shepherd,  O Lord,
and bless us with all good things
that we may be refreshed
with your overflowing cup
and dwell in your house forever;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Source: Ludolph of Saxony, d. 1378

Translation in traditional English, from the Sarum Psalter:

Be our shepherd, O Lord, we entreat Thee; and may we receive all good things from thy sweetness, so that, obtaining an eternal habitation in thy tabernacles, we may be fulfilled with the plenteousness of thine everlasting cup, through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

For Protection

O God,
Shepherd of all your people,
deliver us from all sins which assail us,
that so we may always be pleasing in your sight,
and safe under your shelter;
for Christ’s sake. Amen.
