1 The King of love my Shepherd is,
Whose goodness faileth never;
I nothing lack if I am his
And he is mine forever.

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 a table in my sight;
Thy unction grace bestoweth;
And, oh, 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 forever.


1 El Rey de amor es mi pastor,
su amor es verdadero;
su amparo no me faltará,
pues yo soy su cordero.

2 Me lleva al fresco manantial,
y a buenos pastos guía;
no temeré yo ningún mal,
si mi pastor me cuida.

3 *Perverso y necio me aparté
por valles peligrosos;
me halló, me trajo a su redil
en hombros poderosos.

4 En valle oscuro no tendré
temor si Dios me guía;
su vara y su cayado son
cual luz al alma mía.

5 Ha puesto mesa para mí,
ungióme con aceite,
mi copa rebosando está;
su amor es mi deleite.

6 Misericordia, gracia y paz
tú das al alma mía,
y en tus mansiones moraré,
Señor, por largos días.

*Perversa y necia
