Original Song – “23rd Psalm” (Melody Only)

23rd Psalm is a sacred and prayerful song that respectfully places these beautiful words of the Bible into a melody of my own interpretation for this meditative prayer. The words speak beautifully for themselves, so I’ll not add any further commentary, but simply leave you with these words, “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…”

~~~~~~~~~~

This is the melody I wrote for the “23rd Psalm” and recorded on Set One in 1996. Take one is a bit rough, but take two turned out pretty well ~ I’m sharing both versions with you so you can get the feel for the melody ~ enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark
