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.
And though I walk through the valley of darkness,
I will fear no misfortune,
No persecution, no suffering, no sadness,
No malice in this world;
For thou art ever with me,
Thy rod and Thy staff comfort me, I trust in Thy Word.
Wolfgang Meuslin 18th Century, from Bach Cantata BWV 112
