So fitting for today

remember to turn down the jukebox at the bottom of my blog before playing this.

This is one of my most favorite hymns sung by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. I just love their arrangement of it. I have it on their Consider the Lilies cd.

I just feel that the words to it speaks so softly, yet strongly to me today.
It was also sung as a tribute to President Hinckley.

My Shepherd Will Supply My Need

My Shepherd will supply my need:
Jehovah is His Name;
In pastures fresh He makes me feed,
Beside the living stream.
He brings my wandering spirit back
When I forsake His ways,
And leads me, for His mercy's sake,
In paths of truth and grace.

When I walk through the shades of death,
Thy presence is my stay;
A word of Thy supporting breath
Drives all my fears away.
Thy hand, in sight of all my foes,
Doth still my table spread;
My cup with blessings overflows,
Thine oil anoints my head.

The sure provisions of my God
Attend me all my days;
O may Thy house be my abode,
And all my work be praise!
There would I find a settled rest,
While others go and come;
No more a stranger, nor a guest,
But like a child at home.

That's a beautiful song. I don't think I've ever heard it before.
