1004. One Lost Lamb

1 Ninety-nine were safely sheltered,
Lying in the Shepherd’s fold;
Only one small lamb had wandered
O’er the mountains bare and cold.

Refrain:
O’er the mountain goes the Shepherd,
O’er the steep and rugged way;
On the night winds hear Him calling,
Seeking for His lamb astray.

2 Dearer to the loving Shepherd
Seems the one lost lamb astray
Than the sheltered nine and ninety,
So He seeks it far away. [Refrain]

3 Over crags, the lost one seeking,
Goes the Shepherd through the storm:
Then with joyful heart He bears it
Homeward on His gentle arm. [Refrain]

4 Sinner, Jesus died in mercy,
That thy soul might ransomed be;
Through the wounds that save the wand’rer
Flows His precious blood for thee. [Refrain]
