The King of Love, My Shepherd Is

Lyrics ~ Henry W. Baker,

Music ~ Irish Melody

Stanza 1:

The King of love my shepherd is,

Whose goodness faileth never.

I nothing lack if I am His,

And He is mine forever.

Stanza 2:

Where streams of living water flow,

My randomed soul He leadeth;

And where the verdant pastures grow,

With food celestial feedeth.

Stanza 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.

Stanza 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.

Stanza 5:

Thou spreadst a table in my sight;

Thy unction grace bestoweth;

And oh, what transport of delight

From Thy pure chalice floweth!

Stanza 6:

And so through all the length of days,

Thy goodness faileth never;

Good Shepherd, may I sing Thy praise

Within Thy house forever.
