Psalm 23: God Is Our Shepherd
Michael Morgan’s modest, beautiful hymn of trust is supported by a simple melody and unadorned harmonies. It is a song in the spirit of early American hymn tunes like those found in Southern Harmony.

words by Michael Morgan
music by Greg Scheer
1. God is our shepherd, so faithful and sure,
whose care and affection forever endure;
boundless in giving, God meets every need:
streams to refresh us, and pastures to feed.
2. Lord, your great spirit our souls will restore;
your vow is to ransom, and ours to adore.
Paths of contentment, vales of despair,
we will not waver – salvation is here!
3. Fed at your table, and warmed by your face;
blest with sweet oil and redeemed by your grace;
goodness and mercy are ours for always;
heaven is filled with rejoicing and praise!
