The king of love my shepherd is

Author: Henry Williams Baker, 1821-77 Appears in 602 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.

[Refrain] 4 Days of darkness still may meet me, sorrow's path I oft may tread; but his presence still is with me, by his guiding hand I'm led.

Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing

Author: Robert Robinson, 1735-1790 Meter: D Appears in 2,046 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.

Naught like this can comfort give: "Jesus sinners doth receive." 2 On God's grace we have no claim, yet to us his pledge is given; he hath sworn by his own name, open are the gates of heaven. Take to heart this word and live: "Jesus sinners doth receive." 3 When a helpless lamb doth stray, after it, the Shepherd, pressing thro' each dark and dang'rous way, brings it back, his own possessing. Jesus seeks thee, O believe: "Jesus sinners doth receive." 4 Oh, how blest it is to know: were as scarlet my transgression, it shall be as white as snow by thy blood and bitter passion; for these words I now believe: "Jesus sinners doth receive." 5 Now my conscience is at peace, from the Law I stand acquitted; Christ hath purchased my release and my every sin remitted. Naught remains my soul to grieve - "Jesus sinners doth receive."
