English version of Psalm 23 (The Lord is my shepherd) in Dorian mode for choir SATB


English setting in Dorian mode of Psalm 23 (The Lord is my shepherd) based on my setting of the Martin Luther German version (Der Herr ist mein Hirte).
The sound sample here is performance by the Johannebergs Vokalensemble
under Jan K. Delemark on 4 December 2017
at the Johannebergskyrkan, Göteborg, Sweden

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall lack nothing
he makes me lie down in green pastures
he leads me along the still waters.

He restores my soul
and makes me walk
within the paths of righteousness,
for His name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk in death’s dark vale,
yet will I fear no evil;
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff comfort me still.

You have furnished my table
in the presence of my foes;
my head you anoint with oil
and my cup overflows.

Goodness and mercy all my life
shall surely follow me;
and my dwelling place shall be in God’s house
for evermore
