The King of love my Shepherd is
Tune: Dominus Regit Me  
Metre: 8787  

 

The King of love my Shepherd is,

Whose goodness faileth never;

I nothing lack if I am his

And he is mine for ever.

 

Where streams of living water flow

My ransomed soul he leadeth,

And where the verdant pastures grow

With food celestial feedeth.

 

Perverse and foolish oft I strayed;

And yet in love he sought me,

And on his shoulder gently laid,

And home rejoicing brought me.

 

In deathís 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.

 

Thou spreadíst a table in my sight;

Thy unction grace bestoweth;

And O what transport of delight

From thy pure chalice floweth!

 

And so through all the length of days

Thy goodness faileth never;

Good Shepherd may I sing thy praise

Within thy house for ever
