The King of Love

Donate to Marie Curie Cancer Care

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 waters flow

My ransomed soul he leadeth,

And where the verdant pastures grow,

With food celestial feedeth.


Perverse and foolish oft I strayed,

But yet in Love he sought me,

And on His shoulder gently laid,

And home rejoicing brought me.


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.


Thou spread’st 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

they goodness faileth never:

Good shepherd, may I sing Thy praise

Within Thy house for ever.
