Shelter Me – words and music by Father Michael Joncas
Father Michael Joncas composed Shelter Me in March 2020. It is a paraphrase of Psalm 23. He wrote “these are difficult times for all of us globally and individually. Shelter Me is my attempt as a church composer to find God’s presence even in these fraught times.”
