Psalms in translation

In a class on the Psalms people asked whether the new Prayer Book would have a new translation of the Psalms. Probably...I said...probably. Language is always in the process of change. We cling to old familiar things.

Are there people at work
On new translations
Of the psalms?
Who are they?
Are they people
Of deep prayer?
Do they care
About deer panting
For streams of water?
Or Lord
You have searched me out
And known me?
Is the Lord
Their shepherd
I ask you
Is the Lord
Their shepherd?
Do they walk
Through the valleys
Of the shadows of death
With Him?
With Her?
