238. Our Shepherd Is the Lord

6,6,8,4, bis.
by John Beaumont
Our Shepherd is the Lord,
The living Lord who died:
With all His fullness can afford
We are supplied.
He richly feeds our souls
With blessings from above;
And leads us where the river rolls
Of endless love.
Psalm 23; John 10:11; Revelation 1:8; Philippians 4:19; Psalm 23:2
Our souls He doth restore,
And keeps us in His way;
He makes our cup of joy run o'er
From day to day;
Through love so full, so deep,
Anointed is our head;
Mercy and goodness us shall keep,
Where'er we tread.
Psalm 23:3; Psalm 23:5; Psalm 23:6
When faith and hope shall cease,
And love abide alone,
Then shall we see Him face to face,
And know as known:
Still shall we lift our voice,
His praise our song shall be;
And we shall in His love rejoice
Who set us free.
1 Corinthians 13:13; Revelation 22:4; 1 Corinthians 13:12-13
