Lyrics

The King of love my Shepherd is,
whose goodness faileth never;
I nothing lack if I am his
and he is mine forever.
Where streams of living water flow,
my ransomed soul he leadeth;
and where the verdant pastures grow,
with food celestial feedeth.
Perverse and foolish oft I strayed,
but yet in love he sought me,
and on his shoulder gently laid,
and home, rejoicing, brought me.
I do not fear death’s shadowed vale
when you are here beside me;
Your rod and staff and strength prevail
to comfort and to guide me.
You spread a table in my sight,
your gifts of grace bestowing;
And from your chalice I delight
to taste your mercy flowing.
