Syrian and Iraqi refugees sing for Pope Francis

At the end of September Pope Francis visited the republic of Georgia where a group of Orthodox Christian refugees sang for him in Aramaic. What they are singing isn’t clear, as Slate refers to it as “the well known Psalm 53, Our Father”, when Psalm 53 is neither well known, nor the Our Father (which isn’t even a Psalm) but it is positively ethereal.

I think maybe they meant Psalm 23 which is “The Lord is my Shepherd” and is well known.
