Psalm on Danny Boy

Story Behind The Song

Deborah loves Danny Boy, but the words are depressing and outdated. So she was inspired to take the 23rd Psalm, the most beloved Psalm in the Bible and set it to the tune of Danny Boy (one of the most beloved tunes in the world). This ALL NEW late 2011 arrangement is an original, beautifully orchestrated and sung version. Instrumental versions of all her arrangments of all her beautiful standard/pop songs from her CD, "Clear Skies Ahead" also available, visit:

The Lords my Shepherd, I will not need anything
In pastures green, He makes me down to lie,
He leads me on, beside the calming waters
My soul's restored, as He walks by my side.

The Lord's my Shepherd, I will not need anything,
He shows me paths, the right ones I should take
I'll follow Him, and know that I am safe from harm,
He leads me on, even for His own name's sake.

Yet though I walk through valleys that would frighten me,
I'll have no fear, for He's my faithful guide,
My Shepherd stays beside me, just to comfort me,
No evil touches me while He is by my side.

He spreads a feast, in the presence of my enemies,
He gives me hope, and anoints my head with oil,
My Lord protects me from the harm of evil ones,
My cup runs over with His love and joy.

Surely His goodness, mercy and compassion,
Will follow me, while time on earth goes by,
And He will lead me all the way to Heaven,
When days and journeys end and time at last is done.

And I will dwell within His house forevermore,..

Wow, great, beautiful song. The instrumentation is wonderful and the vocal performance is second to none. The pan flute, with the piano at the intro lures you right in and creates a nice soundscape to latch on to. The rhythm section lays down the perfect groove to support everything up top. The recording, mix, and mastering job are all top tier, professionally completed. VERY NICE WORK on this one.

Beautiful soothing- spritual vocals:)! Great -prayerful lyrics.. Nice orchestrations! Womderful job!

Deborah Wedekind has knocked this one of the park! "Psalm On Danny Boy" is as fine a contemporary Christian record and song as you will hear. I love this!

Deborah Wedekind is an absolutely superb vocalist who with some luck and good experience behind her can definitely be a vital part of the music scene for many years. A superb talent!
