The king of love my shepherd is

Author: Henry Williams Baker, 1821-77 Appears in 595 hymnals Scripture: Luke 15:1-7 Lyrics: 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. 2 Where streams of living water flow my ransomed soul he leadeth, and where the verdant pastures grow with food celestial feedeth. 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. 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. 5 Thou spread'st a table in my sight; thy unction grace bestoweth; and O what transport of delight from thy pure chalice floweth! 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.

There Were Ninety and Nine

Author: Elizabeth Cecilia Douglas Clephane Meter: Irregular Appears in 318 hymnals Scripture: Luke 15:7 First Line: There were ninety and nine that safely lay Lyrics: 1 There were ninety and nine that safely lay in the shelter of the fold, but one was out on the hills away, far off from the gates of gold — away on the mountains wild and bare, away from the tender Shepherd's care, away from the tender Shepherd's care. 2 "Lord, thou hast here thy ninety and nine; are they not enough for thee?" But the Shepherd made answer: "This of mine has wandered away from me, and although the road be rough and steep, I go to the desert to find my sheep, I go to the desert to find my sheep." 3 But none of the ransomed ever knew how deep were the waters crossed; nor how dark was the night that the Lord passed thro' ere he found his sheep that was lost. Out in the desert he heard its cry — sick and helpless, and ready to die, sick and helpless, and ready to die. 4 "Lord, whence are those blood-drops all the way that mark out the mountain's track?" "They were shed for one who had gone astray ere the Shepherd could bring him back." "Lord, whence are thy hands so rent and torn?" "They're pierced tonight by many a thorn, they're pierced tonight by many a thorn." 5 But all thro' the mountains, thunder-riv'n, and up from the rocky steep, there arose a glad cry to the gate of heav'n, "Rejoice! I have found my sheep!" And the angels echoed around the throne, "Rejoice, for the Lord brings back his own! Rejoice, for the Lord brings back his own!"

Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing

Author: Robert Robinson, 1735-1790 Meter: 8.7.8.7 D Appears in 2,035 hymnals Scripture: Luke 15:1-7 Lyrics: 1 Come, thou Fount of every blessing, tune my heart to sing thy grace; streams of mercy, never ceasing, call for songs of loudest praise. Teach me some melodious sonnet, sung by flaming tongues above; praise his name--I'm fixed upon it-- name of God's redeeming love. 2 Here I raise to thee an altar, hither by thy help I've come; and I hope, by thy good pleasure, safely to arrive at home. Jesus sought me when a stranger, wand'ring from the fold of God; he, to rescue me from danger, bought me with his precious blood. 3 O to grace how great a debtor daily I'm constrained to be! Let thy goodness, like a fetter, bind my wandering heart to thee; prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, prone to leave the God I love; here's my heart, O, take and seal it; seal it for thy courts above.
