Heather sang a duet with Jenny S. in Sacrament Meeting on Sunday. I accompanied on the piano, and Tricia B. provided a violin accompaniment as well. It's a beautiful song. The words are by Isaac Watts; the tune is by Joseph Funk; this arrangement is by Craig McQueen. There was such a sweet spirit in the room. Click on this player to hear this lovely song:
My Shepherd will supply my need;
Jehovah is His name.
In pastures fresh He makes me feed,
Beside the living stream.
He brings my wand'ring 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;
One 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.
You know how you get a phone call and you need a pen or pencil to take a message and you can never find a one and you wonder where they all disappear to?
Well, I think I know...
I think they come to my house.
I don't even know where half--make that 90%-- of these came from! I am always sending pens and pencils with Nelson to school. Either they are multiplying in my pencil holder or they are coming by way of a black hole from your place to mine...
