More about David Welker:
I am a hobby classical guitarist and my secondary calling is ward choir director. While I have no formal choir training outside of ward and stake choir, I did play the trombone in the BYU Marching Band, - akin to staying at the Holiday Inn Express - and know where the down beat is. I began playing the trombone at the age of 10 upon quitting guitar lessons because my mother said I had to play something. I started playing the guitar when I was 8 when I quit piano lessons after only one lesson, having been teased by older siblings. Sadly, I was not mature enough to fully appreciate classical guitar at the time, but I picked it back up after our first child was born when my wife told me my other guitars were too noisy. So I bought a Yamaha Classical guitar at the main Yamaha store in Shibuya, Japan and tried to retrain myself. Recently a young man I worked with on my mission sent me "How Great Thou Art" which he had arranged for classical guitar. I played it back for him and he challenged me to arrange something myself and send it back. That something became "The Lord is My Shepherd"...and I am now slowly arranging some of my other favorite hymns...
Song background:

Behold the Lamb of God / 天の装いの子羊,見よ is a well loved hymn in Japan. It is included in both the official 1960 and 1989 Japanese Hymnals of the church.  In my 8 years in Japan it was sung at every baptism I attended.  I imagine it still is.  For some reason it has never found its way into the English Hymnal of the church despite its great message.

After much searching, I finally located the original English in the 1908 Songs of Zion Hymnal - a hymnal published for "Gatherings of Elders and Saints in the Mission Field."  I have arranged it here for any who would like to experience what Japanese Saints for the last hundred years have.
