Sunday's Hymn

The Lord's My Shepherd

The Lord's my Shepherd, I'll not want.
He makes me down to lie
In pastures green; He leadeth me
The quiet waters by.

My soul He doth restore again;
And me to walk doth make
Within the paths of righteousness,
Even for His own Name's sake.

Yea, though I walk in death's dark vale,
Yet will I fear no ill;
For Thou art with me; and Thy rod
And staff my comfort still.

My table Thou hast furnished
In presence of my foes;
My head Thou dost with oil anoint,
And my cup overflows.

Goodness and mercy all my life
Shall surely follow me;
And in God's house forevermore
My dwelling place shall be.

When I was in first or second grade, my family went to a Korean Orphan Choir concert. The Korean Orphan Choir, for those too young to know, was a choir of children from Korea sponsored by World Vision. They travelled round the world, giving concerts and raising money for World Vision. Sometime later the name was changed to the more politically correct Korean Children's Choir, and later the group ceased to exist altogether.

I remember that they sang this hymn in the concert and I loved it. We bought the record so I could listen to them sing it at home, too. Pure, clear, perfect, it was.

The words to this hymn are found in The Scottish Psalter, 1650. The music is written by William Gardiner.

This isn't the Korean Orphan Choir, but it is a choir version of this lovely hymn from The Bible Centre.
