"The melody for this poetic adaptation of Psalm 23 is based on a tender Scottish folk tune. While a piano part is provided, guitar is the ideal primary accompanying instrument, with keyboard and other instruments providing additional texture and color. This song [is] appropriate for funerals, memorial liturgies, the last Sundays of the liturgical year, or whenever images of God’s healing, comfort and faithfulness emerge in the Lectionary. . . .This piece could be sung as a choral anthem or with the assembly joining in singing the refrain." —Tony Alonso
