Faith building Friday

Had so much fun looking for music that I figured I'd continue in the music them.
We've attended several funerals so far this year. All three were Catholic, and Shepherd me, O God was sung at them all. Each time I was moved to tears.
I liked the voices and the arrangement of this version, for some reason it sounds better to me when it's sung by multiple voices rather than a soloist.

Shepherd me, O God,
beyond my wants,
beyond my fears,
from death into life.
1. God is my shepherd,
so nothing shall I want,
I rest in the meadowsof faithfulness and love,
I walk by the quiet waters of peace.
2. Gently you raise me and heal my weary soul,
you lead me by pathways of righteousness and truth,
my spirit shall sing the music of your Name.
3. Though I should wander the valley of death,
I fear no evil,
for you are at my side,
your rod and your staff,
my comfort and my hope.
4. You have set me a banquet of love in the face of hatred,
crowning me with love beyond my power to hold.
5. Surely your kindness and mercy follow me all the days of my life;
I will dwell in the house of my God forevermore.
