Sunday Afternoon Video: The Lord is My Shepherd

On this Sunday, learning about the Good Shepherd in many churches, I offer you "The Lord is my Shepherd" from John Rutter's Requiem. I think it paints a wonderful musical picture of the text.

What did you sing in worship today? Let us know in the comments!


  1. At the Lamb's High Feast We Sing--a favorite from my eldest daughter's funeral, which happened like her baptism during Easter season. Luckily I knew it by heart 'cause I was carrying in the Gospel book on my first day in the new church as a chalice bearer. And Marty Haugen's Shepherd Me, O God for the psalm. Lots of joy!

  2. Today I was musically brave @ my church.
    Although we recite The Mystery of Faith, we have never sung it. And I like it sung. But I needed to cant it, for people to respond. . .so I opened my mouth and tried to carry a tune. Eek!
    Worked okay, though.

  3. I love this so, and love singing it too. Thanks for the video!

  4. WE sanfg all "classic" hymns today:
    Come O Fount of Every Blessing
    Psalm 23 (to crimond)
    There's a wideness in God's Mercy
    O For 1000 Tongues to SIng.

    THe first and last should be quick and peppy. They weren't.

  5. In our little United Church of Canada in Northern Ontario, with a wonderful 14 voice choir, we sang Joyful, Joyful
    Psalm 23 (Crimond)
    Are You a Shepherd?(Ruth Duck)
    Come Touch Our Hearts (Gordon Light)
    Bread for the Journey (Bruce Harding)

  6. I love this piece. So good for the soul. :)

  7. I love the sampler in the photo!

  8. Marty Haugen's Shepherd Me, O God, and the old "The Lord's My Shepherd," CRIMOND, from the Pilgrim Hymnal.

    Used the Haugen as the communion hymn, and I was cantor as this was new for the congregation.
