One of my favorite contemporary versions of this Psalter comes from the gifted Stuart Townend.
Townend is a gifted worship leader, musician and recording artist who has been on numerous albumns. But it’s as songwriter that he makes his greatest impact on contemporary worship. In addition to “The Lord’s My Shepherd,” other songs by him include “The Power of The Cross,” “In Christ Alone,” and “O Church Arise” to name just a few.
“It is so important that our lives are built not on our feelings or circumstances, but on the word of God, and songs can really help us to meditate on and retain truth,” says Townend. “ …if you can express in songs the profound truth of the gospel in a poetic yet accessible way, they really can have an impact in people’s lives.”
