99. A Loving Friend My Shepherd Is

1 A loving Friend my Shepherd is,
Whose goodness faileth never;
I nothing lack if I am His,
And He is mine forever.
Where streams of living water flow,
My ransomed soul He leadeth;
And, where the verdant pastures grow,
With food celestial feedeth.

2 Though oft my wayward feet have strayed,
His loving heart has sought me,
And, on His shoulder safely laid,
My Shepherd home has brought me.
In death’s dark vale I fear no ill
With Him, my Lord, beside me;
His rod and staff my comfort still,
His cross before to guide me.

3 He spreads a table in my sight,
His unction grace bestoweth;
And O the transport of delight
With which my cup o’erfloweth!
And so, through all the length of days,
His goodness faileth never;
Good Shepherd, may I sing Thy praise
Within Thy house forever.
