My shepherd will supply my need,
Jehovah is his name;
in pastures fresh he makes me feed
beside the living stream.

He brings my wandering spirit back
when I forsake his ways,
and leads me, for his mercy's sake,
in paths of truth and grace.

When I walk through the shades of death,
thy presence is my stay;
one word of they supporting breath
drives all my fears away.

Thy hand, in sight of all my foes,
doth still my table spread;
my cup with blessings overflows,
thy oil anoints my head.

The sure provisions of my God
attend me all my days;
oh, may thy house be mine abode
and all my work be praise.

There would I find a settled rest,
while others go and come;
no more a stranger or a guest,
but like a child at home.

Psalm 23; para. Isaac Watts (1674-1748).

review copy

Every Christian should know this hymn (using the early American tune RESIGNATION), and Peter Niedmann's setting is a wonderful introduction to both text and tune. Set for unison voices with optional descant, its well-crafted keyboard part makes this piece a "must-have." Perfect for children's choirs!
