King of Love (New)

Verses: Sir Henry Williams Baker (1868)
Chorus and Music: Stu Garrard, Stephanie Kulla, Matthew Hein, Adam Palmer & Jonathan Lindley Smith

Verse 1
The King of Love my Shepherd is,
Whose goodness faileth never.
I nothing lack if I am His,
And He is mine forever.

Verse 2
Where streams of living water flow,
My ransomed soul He leadeth;
And where the verdant pastures grow,
With food celestial feedeth.

Chorus
Never failing, Ruler of my heart.
Everlasting, Lover of my soul!
On the mountain high or in the valley low,
The King of Love my Shepherd is!
The King of Love my Shepherd is!

Verse 3
Lost and foolish, oft I strayed,
But yet in love He sought me;
And on His shoulder gently laid,
And home, rejoicing, brought me.

Verse 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.

Chorus
Never failing, Ruler of my heart!
Everlasting, Lover of my soul!
On the mountain high or in the valley low,
The King of Love my Shepherd is!

Never failing, Ruler of my heart.
Everlasting, Lover of my soul!
On the mountain high or in the valley low,
The King of Love my Shepherd is!
The King of Love my Shepherd is!

Verse 5
So through all the length of days,
Thy goodness faileth never;
Good Shepherd, may I sing Thy praise,
Within Thy house forever.
Within Thy house forever.
