  • THE KING OF LOVE MY SHEPHERD IS: The words were written by Henry Baker, known for compiling the English hymnal "Hymns Ancient And Modern" many centuries ago. Based on the beloved 23rd Psalm, many consider this the finest musical setting ever composed for these pastoral reflections from the shepherd boy who became a king. Quite popular as an Anglican, Lutheran, Methodist, and Episcopal hymn, The King Of Love My Shepherd Is has been oft used as a choral piece, and is here performed as a somewhat Celtic styled solo for Irish whistle and flute, performed by recording artist Tobin Wingard of Bloomington, Indiana.

about

THE KING OF LOVE MY SHEPHERD IS is primarily a hymn of Lutheran, Anglican (Episcopal) and Methodist churches; also used in Catholic and various protestant churches.

We recorded it with a bit of a Celtic style, with a somewhat static chordal background which gives it a modal, haunting, & meditative flavor.

lyrics

The King Of Love My Shepherd Is

The King of love my shepherd is
Whose goodness faileth never
I nothing lack if I am his
And He is mine forever

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

Perverse and foolish oft I strayed
But yet in love He sought me
And on his shoulder gently laid
And home rejoicing brought me

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

Thou spread'st a table in my sight
Thine unction grace bestoweth
And oh, what transport of delight
From Thy pure chalice floweth

And so through all the length of days
Thy goodness faileth never
Good Shepherd may I sing Thy praise
Within thy house forever
