1982 Keith Green – Songs For The Shepherd

Songs For The Shepherd is the fifth album released by American contemporary Christian music pianist and singer Keith Green.

Keith Gordon Green (October 21, 1953 – July 28, 1982) was an American contemporary Christian music pianist, singer, and songwriter originally from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, New York. Beyond his music, Green is best known for his strong devotion to Christ and challenging others to the same. Several of his compositions became standards of contemporary Christian music. Notable songs include “Oh Lord, You’re Beautiful”, “Asleep in the Light”, “Your Love Broke Through”, “You Put This Love in My Heart”, “The Prodigal Son Suite”, and “There Is a Redeemer”, the last of which was written by his wife Melody.
