Easy Anthems for Summer Choirs
Suggested Uses(s)

Two-Part Choir and Keyboard (organ or piano) with optional C Instrument. Brother James Air is the famous tune associated with this text, and here it is offered in an EASY arrangement by Roger Price. A two-part equal voice setting in exact canon. The optional instrumental descant will add to the piece but certainly isn't necessary for the performance of this lovely anthem.

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 in His love abide.

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 furnishèd
My cup Thou overfills.

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