“The Lord is My Shepherd” is best suited to advanced high school programs, college choirs and skilled church choirs. Surprising turns in the melody and unexpected harmonies bring freshness to this popular text.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil,
for You are with me;[Text Wrapping Break]Your rod and Your staff,
they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
– Psalm 23, English Standard Version
