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:

I have always loved the hymn "The Lord is My Shepherd", particulary the mens arrangement in the old blue hymnal.  The melody in the alto lends itself particularly well to classical guitar.  Feel free to contact me with errors you find or suggestions you may have.  It can be difficult to write down what you actually play...so I find myself editing a lot.  :)  To that end, I have cleaned up quite a few notation irregularities, as well as found a missing accidental and changed the octave of a few notes in the tremolo sectiion...I apologize to anyone who downloaded this prior to 8/30/17.  I think this may be the actual final edit.
