“The Lord Is My Shepherd” is a sweet setting of the famous 23rd Psalm that evokes trust and commitment to the Good Shepherd. It explores the text with a simple melody over a pastoral harp-like accompaniment in the keyboard. The piece grows with both the angst and repose of the text, leading to a triumphant choral section on the words “and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”

Text (Psalm 23, KJV, freely rendered)
The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want,
He maketh lie in green pastures,
He leadeth me by the still waters,
He restoreth my soul.
He leads me down the path of righteousness
for His name’s sake.
Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil, for Thou art with me,
Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.
He settest a banqueting feast
in the presence of my enemies,
He annointeth my head with oil,
my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
-to God alone all glory is given-
