Two-part choir (equal voices - in canon) and piano, organ, or harpsichord. A setting of the hymn-tune St. Columba with the accompaniment from JS Bach's Prelude No.1 in C major from The Well-Tempered Clavier. Hymn-text by Henry Baker.
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.
Thy goodness faileth never;
Good Shepherd, may I sing Thy praise
Within Thy house forever.
