The Lord is my Shepherd

'The Lord is my Shepherd' is a choral piece written for SATB. The piece was written as a dedication to the memory of a close family friend. The piece was premiered at the Peabody Conservatory in Griswold Hall and was conducted by Steven M. Crino. 

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures;
He leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul; 
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

I will fear no evil; for Thou art with me;

Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; 
and i will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

- Psalm 23
