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 spreadst a table in my sight;
thy 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.

The King of Love My Shepherd Is by Sir Henry Williams Baker

Uniquely Me (a poem by Alex Graham James)

I am
a confusion of cultures.
Uniquely me.
I think this is good
because I can
understand
the traveller, sojourner, foreigner,
the homesickness
that comes.
I think this is also bad
because I cannot
be understood
by the person who has sown and grown in the same place.
They know not
the real meaning of homesickness
that hits me
now and then.
Sometimes I despair of
understanding them.
I am
an island
and
a United Nations.
Who can recognize either in me
but God?

We're Going Home to Glory Soon

We're going home to glory soon,
To see the City bright,
To walk the golden streets of Heaven,
And bask in God's own light;
But some of you are out of Christ,
And held by many a snare,
We cannot leave you lost and lone,
We want you over there!

The pearly gates will open wide,
And we shall enter in,
To know henceforth no tear or sigh
No sorrow and no sin;
O come with us by Jesus' blood,
That land is bright and fair,
We cannot leave you lost and lone,
We want you over there!

We come to tell the story true
Of love so rich and free,
A crucified and loving Lord
Has grace for you and me:
O, listen to His loving voice,
O part with sin and care,
We cannot leave you lost and lone,
We want you over there!

We know the time is fleeting fast,
The Lord is near at hand,
O sinner seek the ark of grace,
Its doors wide open stand;
Christ will not always waiting be,
To trifle do not dare,
We cannot leave you lost and lone,
We want you over there!
