Description: The Lord Is My Shepherd, composed for our Viva Voce curriculum, is an anthem reminiscent of a folk dance. Set in a harmonic minor key, accelerating to the end, this anthem provides opportunities to teach choristers to sing melodic minor scales and to differentiate between the emphases on beat 1 and beat 4 in 6/8 time.

The Lord is my shepherd; He takes care of me.
The Lord is my shepherd; I’ll follow where He leads.
Beside the quiet water or through the green field,
The Lord is my shepherd; I’ll follow where He leads.
I never will fear for He knows all my needs;
The Lord is my shepherd; I’ll follow where He leads.
