Psalm 23 Remixed for a Rushed Society

The Lord is my pacesetter, I shall not rush.

he makes me stop and rest for quiet intervals,

 He provides me with images of stillness

which restore my serenity.

He leads me in ways of efficiency,

through calmness of mind,

and his guidance is peace.

Even though I have a great many things to 

accomplish this day,

I will not fret,

for his presence is here

His timlessness,

His all-importance will keep me in balance.

He prepares refreshment and renewal

in the midst of my activity

by anointing my head with the oil of tranquility,

My cup of joyous energy overflows.

Surely harmony and effectiveness shall be the fruits of my hours,

for I shall walk in the place of my Lord,

and dwell in His house forever.
