My Shepherd Will Supply My Need, arr. by Mark Hayes

Maybe it's just me. 3/4 meter is harder to play compared to 4/4 meter.

This piece has been on my to-do list for several years.

Not only because it is in 3/4 meter, but also because of the texture of the piece.

Mark Hayes did not use big fat chords in this piece which is very unusual for him. And also he left a lot of spaces on staff...

Most people think it is harder to play a piece of music that is filled with busy notes. But the truth is on the contrary.

It is much harder to breathe with the silence of music, and it takes much more energy and effort to fill the empty spaces.

This piece grew on me while it has been sitting on my to-do list.

Here is Psalm 23 for you to meditate on while listening to this piece.

  1. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

  2. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.

  3. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name's sake.

  4. Yes, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

  5. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.

  6. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
