The Kingdom of God by J. Berthier Lyrics
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 stayed: 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’st a table in my sight; Thy unction grace bestoweth; And O! what 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 for ever!
