Posted:  05 Aug 2008 14:42
Can anyone remember the name and lyrics to: the Lord is my shepherd, but not the original one, this one went something like: The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want, I have everything that I need…(cant remember the rest)
(then Chorus): My Lord, Lord (oh my Lord) be my shepherd, let me be your sheep?

Thanks.

this may not be the one you want, but here is something i found

Original Trinity Hymnal, #663
From Psalm 23

The Lord is my Shepherd, no want shall I know;
I feed in green pastures, safe-folded I rest;
He leadeth my soul where the still waters flow,
Restores me when wandering, redeems when oppressed.

Through the valley and shadow of death tho' I stray,
Since thou art my Guardian, no evil I fear;
Thy rod shall defend me, thy staff be my stay;
No harm can befall with my Comforter near.

In the midst of affliction my table is spread;
With blessings unmeasured my cup runneth o'er;
With perfume and oil thou anointest my head;
O what shall I ask of thy providence more?

Let goodness and mercy, my bountiful God,
Still follow my steps till I meet thee above:
I seek by the path which my forefathers trod,
Thro' the land of their sojourn, Thy kingdom of love.

here is something else

Psalm 23
Scottish Psalter 1650
The Lord’s my shepherd, I’ll not want. He makes me down to lie.
In pastures green, He leadeth me, the quiet waters by
My soul He doth restore again; and me to walk doth make
Within the paths of righteousness, all for His own name’s sake.


Yea, though I walk in death’s dark vale, yet will I fear no ill,
For You are with me, and Your rod, and staff me comfort still.
My table You prepare for me, in presence of my foes;
My head You do with oil anoint, and my cup overflows.

Goodness and mercy all my life, shall surely follow me.
And in GOD’s house for evermore, my dwelling-place shall be.
The Lord’s my shepherd, I’ll not want. He makes me down to lie.
In pastures green, He leadeth me, the quiet waters by.

here's another

The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me down to lie
In pastures green He leadeth me
The quiet waters by.

Refrain

His yoke is easy; His burden is light.
I’ve found it so; I’ve found it so.
He leadeth me by day and by night
Where living waters flow.

My soul crieth out: “Restore me again,
And give me the strength to take
The narrow path of righteousness,
E’en for His own Name’s sake.”

Refrain

Yea, tho’ I should walk the valley of death,
Yet why should I fear from ill?
For Thou art with me, and Thy rod
And staff me comfort still.

Refrain

I have been looking for this too since I used to sing it in primary school, I have never heard it since, if you find it please let me know!

This is something how I remember it but might be very wrong as I am 24 and last time I sung it I was 11!

The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want
I have everything
That I need
Near to pastures green
By the cooling(?) stream
Here he will revive(?)
My (something) spirit(?)

My Lord
Lord (oh my lord)
Be my shepherd
Let me
Be your sheep

It's sang in a minor key, I wish I knew how to get hold of the music and lyrics I can't find them anywhere.

Hi, I'd love for you to post the lyrics and the chords. I've also been looking for this song for years, it's the most touching version of the psalm as far as I'm concerned. I look forward to being able to sing it fully again and not only the first verse!!!  Lole

ok will get onto it

watch this space

here are the lyrcis i know for starters. not sure if in right order etc but near enough

The Lord is my shepherd i shall not want
I have everything that i need
Near to pastures green, but the cooling stream
Here he will revive my drooping spirit

Chorus
My Lord
Lord (Oh my lord) be my shepherd
Let me be your sheep.

His goodness and kindness shall follow me
And be with me, all my days
In his house devine, to the end of time
I will honour him forever more

Chorus

His footsteps he guides on the right path
As he promises to all men
Even when I trail
Through the darkest vale
And my cup he fills to overflowing


there is another verse about "anoint my head" but don't know that one.

I am sure this is the same one that I have been looking for for years too!
Like others, I've not heard this since primary school, but it's so nice and stuck in my head.
Thank you for posting the words.
I have done a quick recording of the tune here: http://www.denmiller.com/LIMS.mp3
Is this the same tune?
If it is, I will try and write out the music (I can only do this very slowly!), unless someone has found it already?

Cheers

Don't hold your breath - this will take me ages!!
I will post a link to a PDF or something when I'm done, probably in a few months

Cheers

This is "Brother James' Air" by James L Bain (1840-1925)  There's a great choral arangement I remember singing in high school back in the 70's.
MusicNotes.Com has it.

The Lord's my Shepherd, I'll not want, He makes me down to lie
In pastures green, He leadeth me the quiet waters by;
He leadeth me, He leadeth me, the quiet waters by.
My soul He doth restore again, And me to walk doth make
Within the paths of blessedness, E'en for His own name's sake;
Within the paths of blessedness E'en for His own name's sake.
Yea, tho I walk through shadowed vale, yet will I fear no ill,
For Thou art with me and thy rod And staff me comfort still;
Thy rod and staff me comfort still, me comfort still.
My table thou hast furnished in presence of my foes.
My head with oil Thou dost annoint, And my cup overflows;
My head with oil Thou dost annoint, And my cup overflows.
Goodness and mercy all my days shall surely follow me,
And in my father's house always my dwelling place shall be;
And in my heart foreevermore Thy dwelling place shall be,
Thy dwelling place shall be.
Posted:  11 Mar 2010 18:25
Just to be clear - The Brother James Air, lovely as it is, is not the one we are trying to find.

Good news - someone has emailed me after I posted the version I wrote from memory, and it contains what looks like a genuine copy of the sheet music! Unfortunately, it still has no name and no author listed, but it looks the business!

It also has lots of handwritten annotations and cool doodles on it, so I don't want to post it. What I will do though, is produce another version using my software based on this new copy, and will post again when I've done this.

This may take a while, but for those who can't wait, looking at the new version I can say that my original version is fairly close.

Cheers

I am desperate to get hold of the sheet music for this as I want it played/sung at my wedding next year. Can anyone help? Thanks.

The Lord’s My Shepherd (Crimond) – also sometimes called The 23rd Psalm (Crimond) – is probably what you’re looking for.

The words and music were written separately, several centuries ago in the Anglican church of which my church, the Episcopal church, is a part.  The original words (see below) which reformatted the 23rd psalm so that it rhymed first appeared in the 1650 Scottish Psalter.  This rhyming version is called the ‘metric version’ of the psalm.

The tune, Crimond, is credited to Jessie Seymour Irving (1836 – 1883).  Reportedly, the tune was named after the parish church and village where her father was a minister.  The tune was not associated with the metric version of the 23rd psalm until years later.  Although other music has been associated with the metric 23rd psalm, the most popular musical setting is the Crimond.

Perhaps the earliest and most widely-heard rendering of The 23rd Psalm (Crimond) was during the 1947 wedding of Princess (now Queen) Elizabeth.  It was also heard widely during Princess Diana’s funeral in 1997.  I was a kid when I first heard it when Hayley Mills sang a verse of it in a movie whose title I no longer remember.  The text was first published together with the Crimond tune in the 1950’s in a Methodist hymnal.  It is now in several protestant hymnals including ours in the Episcopal church and is popular for both weddings and funerals.

You can hear the text set to other music, as well as to the Crimond music, on YouTube.  Also, a quick check on Google found several websites where you can get the sheet music (for a price).  If you sift through the hit list for the sheet music you might find some place where you can get it for free.  I just looked at the first dozen hits.  Remember to look under both titles I included in the first sentence of this post.  Good Luck!

The Lord’s my Shepherd, I’ll not want.
He makes me down to lie
In pastures green; He leadeth me
The quiet waters by.

My soul He doth restore again;
And me to walk doth make
Within the paths of righteousness,
Even for His own Name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk in death’s dark vale,
Yet will I fear no ill;
For Thou art with me; and Thy rod
And staff my comfort still.

My table Thou hast furnishèd
In presence of my foes;
My head Thou dost with oil anoint,
And my cup overflows.

Goodness and mercy all my life
Shall surely follow me;
And in God’s house forevermore
My dwelling place shall be.
