1 Praise to my Shepherd King,
Saviour divine;
Glad notes of joy I sing,
No want is mine,
His gifts, a full supply,
Garden of delight,
Pastures green, water’s sheen,
Brighten all my night.

My cup, it runneth o’er,
Jesus fills with love;
Fully blest, soul at last,
Like heav’n above.

2 My soul is now restored
Thro’ Jesus’ pow’r,
My great triumphant Lord
Keeps me ev’ry hour.
He makes His rod my joy,
His staff so dear!
Paths of right, always bright,
Jesus ever near. [Refrain]

3 Here is a table spread,
Banquet of love;
Glad oil upon my head,
Poured from above;
Foes cannot now encroach,
Jesus stands on guard,
Vict’ry won, heav’n begun,
Love its own reward. [Refrain]

4 My days are shining bright;
Thro’ future time
Each added hour shall be,
Lord, wholly Thine.
Thy name, dear Shepherd Kind,
Stamped on my brow;
In Thee I’ll dwell, Thy love I’ll tell,
Sing hallelujah now! [Refrain]
