Anthems, Psalms and Canticles
Moderately Easy
Suggested Uses(s)

SAB Choir and Organ - A beautiful SAB setting for smaller choirs with a captivating new melody and a middle section that is unexpected and lovely. Based on the composer's hymn tune "Somerset Oaks." Text: Isaac Watts

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 way,

And leads me for His mercy's sake
in paths of truth and grace.

When I walk through the shades of death
His presence is my stay,

One word of His supporting grace
drives all my fears away;

His hand in sight of all my foes
doth still my table spread,

My cup with blessings overflows,
His oil anoints my head.

The sure provisions of my God
attend me all my days;

Oh, 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.
