  • The Lord Is My Shepherd
  • (With Congregational Responses – #138 | The King of Love My Shepherd Is | Verses: 1 and 6)

Children: The Lord is my Shepherd; He gives me everything I need.
He cares for me and guides me as I follow where He leads.
I know that He is with me, no matter where I go.
I will always follow Jesus because He loves me so.

Congregation: The King of love my shepherd is, whose goodness faileth never. I nothing lack if I am His, and He is mine forever.

Children: The Lord is my Shepherd; He gives me everything I need.
He cares for me and guides me as I follow where He leads.
I know that He is with me, no matter where I go.
I will always follow Jesus because He loves me so.

Congregation: And so through all the length of days, thy goodness faileth never; Good Shepherd, may I sing thy praise within thy house forever.

Children: I know that He is with me, no matter where I go. I will always follow Jesus because He loves me so.
