When Jesus found me

Representative Text

1 I was weary, lost and straying,
When Jesus sought me;
With the wand’ring sheep was straying,
When the Shepherd dear found me.

He sought and found me,
Hungry, faint and cold;
In His loving arms He brot’ me
Gently to the Shepherd’s fold.

2 I was bruised and faint with weakness,
When Jesus sought me;
Sinful, wretched, vile and helpless,
When the Shepherd dear found me. [Chorus]

3 I’m no longer lost and bleating,
Since Jesus found me;
Safely sheltered in His keeping,
Since the Shepherd dear found m. [Chorus]

4 Sinner, are you weary, wand’ring?
Jesus now seeks you;
Hear, the Shepherd voice is pleading,
Jesus now is calling you. [Chorus]
