Come to Me

The Lord is my Shepherd

Come to Me is written by composer and author, Gregory Norbet (b.1940). It was first published 1971 as part of the collection, Locusts and Wild Honey sung by the Benedictine Monks of Weston Priory, Vermont. Over his 21 years as a monk at the Priory, Gregory Norbet composed, sang, and performed on 12 albums. Some of his best known songs from that period include: Hosea (Come Back to Me), Something Which is Known, and Go Up to the Mountain. He remains active today as a composer and recording artist with OCP, as well as serving the Hosea Foundation, a not-for-profit ministry which he founded. In the Liturgy of the Hours, Come to Me is used with the Common of Pastors, the Office of the Dead, and on the Feast of the Sacred Heart.
