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.
