Psalm 23:1-2,4,6

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.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

The Lord is My Shepherd (1994), composed by Howard Goodall (b. 1958)


Performed by Georgia Boy Choir (of Atlanta, Georgia, USA)

Exodus 1:8,11,13; 2:23

Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph.

11 Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and Raamses.

13 And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigour:

23 And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage.

“Now there arose,” “And the children of Israel” (from Israel in Egypt), composed by George Frideric Handel (1685-1759) and premiered in London on April 4, 1739
