Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

976. The Lost Sheep

1 The ninety-nine are safely lying
In the fold, in the fold;
Go search the sheep that’s lost and dying,
In the cold, in the cold.

Refrain:
Far away, far away,
Has wandered far away;
That sheep is lost upon the mountain,
Far away, far away.

2 That sheep is lost upon the mountain,
Far away, far away;
Has wandered from the crystal fountain,
Far away, far away. [Refrain]

3 That sheep is lost, oh, who will find it?
Search today, search today;
Oh, sound the voice of bride and Spirit,
Search today, search today. [Refrain]

4 That wand’ring sheep the Lord doth cherish,
Gone astray, gone astray;
With cold and hunger soon ’twill perish,
Far away, far away. [Refrain]
