Morning prayer hymns Rolf A. F. Witzsche

The King of Love our Shepherd is


Based on hymns

God is Mind: the generous creative, enabling impetus;
 the ennobling, enriching, beautifying, empowering, protecting,
 producing, healing, freeing, enlightening, expanding, and harmonizing presence.

 

The King of Love our Shepherd is,
Whose goodness faileth never;
We nothing lack, for we are His
And He is 'I or Us' forever.

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

Perverse and foolish oft we strayed,
But yet in Love He sought us,
And on His shoulder gently laid,
And home, rejoicing, brought us.

And so through all the length of days
Love's goodness faileth never;
Good Shepherd, may I sing Thy praise
Within Thy house forever.
