    Verse 1
    The King of love my Shepherd is.
    Whose goodness faileth never.
    I nothing lack if I am His
    And He is mine for ever.

    Verse 2
    Where streams of living water flow
    My ransomed soul He leadeth,
    And where the verdant pastures grow
    With food celestial feedeth.

    Verse 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.

    Verse 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.

    Verse 5
    Thou spread'st a table in my sight;
    Thy unction grace bestoweth;
    And O what transport of delight
    From Thy pure chalice floweth!

    Verse 6
    And so through all the length of days
    Thy goodness faileth never;
    Good Shepherd, may I sing Thy praise
    Within Thy house for ever!
