106. Psalm 23: The King of Love

1 The King of love my shepherd is,
whose goodness keeps me ever.
I wnat for nothing! I am God's
and God is mine forever.

2 Where streams of living water flow
My happy soul God leads now,
And where the greenest pastures grow
with food celestial feeds now.

3 Though often foolishly I strayed,
still in true love God sought me;
and told me to be unafraid,
and home again God brought me.

4 In time of death I'll have no fear
with You, dear Lord, beside me;
your rod and staff my comfort still,
your cross before to guide me.

5 You spread a table in my sight;
The bread of life bestowing;
With promise of eternal light
My cup is overflowing!

6 Through all of my remaining days
Then guide me, leave me never,
Good Shepherd, may I sing Your praise
Within Your house forever.
