The King of love my shepherd is

The king of love my shepherd is,
whose goodness fails me never;
I nothing lack if I am his
and he is mine for ever.

2. Where streams of living waters flow,
a ransomed soul, he leads me;
and where the richest pastures grow,
with food from heaven feeds me.

3. Perverse and foolish I have strayed,
but in his love he sought me;
and on his shoulder gently laid,
and home, rejoicing, brought me.

4. In death’s dark vale I fear no ill
with you, dear Lord, beside me;
your rod and staff my comfort still,
your cross before to guide me.

5. You spread a banquet in my sight
of grace beyond all knowing;
and O, the wonder and delight
from your pure chalice flowing!

6. And so through all the length of days
your goodness fails me never:
Good Shepherd, may I sing your praise
within your house for ever!
