Have ye looked for my sheep in the desert, For those who have missed their way

1 Have ye looked for the sheep in the desert,
For those who have missed their way?
Have ye been in the wild waste places,
Where the lost and the wandering stray?

Go, Go, search for the lost,
Out on the mountains of sin;
Go, Go, count not the cost!
Go find them and bring them in.

2 Have ye searched for the poor and needy,
No clothing, no home, no bread?
The dear Saviour of men walked with them,
And had nowhere to lay His head. [Refrain]

3 Have ye carried the free living water
To quicken the thirsty soul?
Have ye said to the sick and wounded
That Christ Jesus can make them whole? [Refrain]

4 Have ye stood by the sad and the weary
And spoke of the happy land?
Have ye guided the tottering footsteps
To the shore of the golden strand? [Refrain]
