Representative Text

1 O’er the dreary mountains,
Thor’ the sleet and cold,
Seeking for the lost ones
That have left the fold.

Refrain:
“For the Son of man is come to seek and save,
For the Son of man is come to seek and save,
For the Son of man is come to seek and save,
Seek and save that which was lost.”

2 Prodigal returning,
Shout the glad refrain,
Father’s heart is burning,
Lost, but found again. [Refrain]

3 Joy among the angels
For a heart depraved
Has been brought to Jesus,
And a soul is saved. [Refrain]
