Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Ricardo Villarreal composed the text and tune of this setting of Psalm 23, including only the first five (not all six) verses of Psalm 23 as well as a final doxology stanza. The Spanish text and music were published with a harmonization by Delbert Asay in an undated songbook (c. 1975) entitled Nuevas Canciones Cristianas (New Christian Songs), published by Centro de Musica de la Iglesia Evangelica Metodista in Uruguay. It was first published in the United States in Celebremos II, a collection of Hispanic songs with English translations provided by a task force of United Methodist Hispanic congregations. The English translation was revised for the Psalter Hymnal by the revision committee. For further commentary on this psalm see PHH 23.
