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. 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.
4. And so through all the length of days, Thy goodness faileth never; Good Shepherd, may I sing Thy praise Within Thy house forever.
