"You Are My Shepherd" by Gloria Fanchiang

"Gloria Fanchiang is a second-generation Taiwanese American songwriter, independent recording artist and worship leader based in Los Angeles. She is passionate about decolonizing worship and resourcing and empowering Asian American communities to develop contextualized worship music and liturgy." I've written about her work previously.

A recent work of hers is "You Are My Shepherd," a simplified second-person expression of Psalm 22. It would work well in a Sunday morning service. Lyrics below:

You are my Shepherd

You are my Shepherd

I shall not want, shall not want

You lead me forward

Providing for me

I have no reason to fear

Though I journey through the valley

Of the shadow of death

You are with me

Offering comfort

In the presence of my enemies

Your blessing unfolds

You anoint me

You restore me

Your lovingkindness

Your lovingkindness

Shall follow me all my days

My cup runs over

My cup runs over

And I shall dwell in your house forever
