I was reminded of this adaptation of the 23rd Psalm the other day and wanted to share. What a beautiful thing to remember.
(arranged by Mack Wilberg)
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 Thy 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,
Thine oil anoints my head.
The sure provisions of my God
Attend me all my days;
O may Thy house be my abode,
And all my work be praise.
There would I find a settled rest,
While others go and come;
No more a stranger, nor a guest,
But like a child at home.
–Isaac Watts (1674-1748)

Reblogged this on Transformed By Hope and commented:
For those who may need to be renewed in spirit, or those who may need a respite, or those who want to sustain hope in a dark moment, I share this post from the Sunday Morning Forum in which I participate. This arrangement and performance of Psalm 23 has a beauty that refreshes (even if it brings tears to your eyes).
