1 Such perfect love my Shepherd shows,
whose goodness fails me never;,
whose hand all things I need bestows
and watches me forever.
2 Where streams of living water flow,
my loving Shepherd leads me,
and where the verdant pastures grow
with food from heaven feeds me.
3 When vain and foolish I have strayed,
you, faithful Shepherd, sought me;
and on your shoulder gently laid,
then home, rejoicing, brought me.
4 I do not fear death's shadowed vale
when you are here beside me;
your rod and staff and strength prevail
to comfort and to guide me.
5 You spread a table in my sight,
your gifts of grace bestowing;
and from your chalice I delight
to taste your mercy flowing.
6 And so through all the length of days
your goodness fails me never;
Good Shepherd, may I sing your praise
within your house forever.
