‘The Lord’s My Shepherd, I’ll Not Want’

Aided by a deft use of technology, John Campbell sings a four-part harmony to bring this hymn to life: The Lord’s My Shepherd, I’ll Not Want. It can’t possibly be as easy as it looks. But it’s a new way to glorify God.


By Request, ‘Some Through the Waters, Some Through the Flood’

I’m so glad I saved this hymn request from Susan for now, after all the frustrations of the morning–Some Though the Waters, Some Through the Flood, sung by Travis Cottrell.

Pillar of fire, pillar of cloud: but now God leads us by His enscriptured Word, by hymns, by the beauty and the glory of His handiwork that we see all around us, and by the ministration of the Holy Spirit and the promise of Christ’s Kingdom.

This is what we need to remember: trust in the Lord.

‘The Lord Is My Shepherd’ (Cathedral choir)

This is the 23rd Psalm set to music and sung by the choir at Wells Cathedral, England. Some of us first heard it as the theme song to an anything-but-reverent British comedy, The Vicar of Dibley. But the hymn will stay with you longer than the comedy.

Stuart Townend Sings Psalm 23

I did know that Stuart Townend, with Keith Getty, co-wrote In Christ Alone–so that’s a major achievement, so many people already love that hymn. But this is the first I’d ever heard him sing: the 23rd Psalm, set to music by Stuart Townend.

You already know the words.

Encore, ‘The Lord Is My Shepherd’

The Lord Is My Shepherd (Psalm 23), sung by the choir of Wells Cathedral–yes, I know I’ve posted this before, but it seemed for today. Certainly we need our Shepherd! This fallen world would swallow us up alive, without Him. Jesu, Lord, defend us!

‘The Lord Is My Shepherd’

I’m out of hymn requests, so let’s fall back on an old favorite: the 23rd Psalm set to music, The Lord Is My Shepherd, performed by the choir at Wells Cathedral, England.

I wonder if Psalm 23 is the most frequently memorized passage in the Bible. It was read more than any other Psalm, back when Bible readings started our school day. We were Christian kids and Jewish kids, so the readings were all from the Old Testament. And it was better than it is now.
