#301: The King of Love My Shepherd Is

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

The King of love my Shepherd is,

Whose goodness faileth never;

I nothing lack if I am His

And He is mine forever.

2

Where streams of living water flow

My ransomed soul He leadeth,

And, where the verdant pastures grow,

With food celestial feedeth.

3

Perverse and foolishoft I strayed,

But yet in love He sought me,

And on His shoulder gently laid,

And home rejoicing brought me.

4

And so thru all the length of days

Thy goodness faileth never:

Good Shepherd, may I sing Thy praise

Within Thy house forever.
