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 foolish, oft I strayed,
but yet in 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 Thee, dear Lord, beside me;
Thy rod and staff my comfort still,
Thy cross before to guide me.
5 And so through all the length of days
Thy goodness faileth never;
good Shepherd, may I sing Thy praise
within thy house forever.
