"Mon Berger (Alléluia)" by Glorious (France)

I learned about the work of the French worship team, Glorious, from a colleague from my alma mater. This past year, they released a new EP entitled "Royaume" (translated "Kingdom"). My favorite song from the album is "Mon Berger (Alléluia)," which is translated "My Shepherd (Hallelujah)." The lyrics are based in Psalm 23. If the worship team can properly pronounce the French words and execute the melismas, it could work as a congregational song. Lyrics and translation below:


Le Seigneur est mon berger rien ne saurait me manquer

Sur des prés d’herbes fraîches Il me fait reposer

Vers les eaux tranquilles Il me fait revivre

Il me conduit par le juste chemin

Et je chante je chante


Alléluia Alléluia Alléluia


Même si je traversais tous les ravins de la mort

Je ne craindrais aucun mal

Car mon Dieu est avec moi je marche au son de Sa voix

Son bâton me guide et me rassure

Et je chante je chante


Et Tu prépares ma table là devant mes adversaires

Tu répands le parfum ma coupe est débordante

Grâce et bonheur m’accompagnent pour tous les jours de ma vie

J’habiterai la maison la maison du Seigneur

Et je chante je chante


English translation:

The Lord is my Shepherd, nothing can I miss

On meadows of fresh grass, He makes me rest

Towards still waters, He brings me back to life

He leads me on the right path

And I sing, I sing


Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah


Even though I cross all the ravines of death

I wouldn't fear any harm

'Cause my God is with me, I walk at the sound of His voice

His staff guides me and reassures me

And I sing, I sing


And You prepare my table, there in front of my adversaries

You spread the perfume, my cup is overflowing

Grace and happiness are with me for all the days of my life

I will live in the house of the Lord's house

And I sing, I sing
