238. Our Shepherd Is the Lord

6,6,8,4, bis.

1
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
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
3
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.
