Representative Text

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.

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]
