1 Thru the darkness there comes a sorrowful cry,
"O where are My straying sheep?"
On mountain, in glen, they languish and die,
O where are My straying sheep?

Refrain:
O wandering sheep, come home;
O wandering sheep, come home;
Within the warm fold, take shelter from cold,
O wandering sheep, come home.

2 O Christians, help sound that sorrowful cry,
"O where are My straying sheep?"
Help gather them for the fold in the sky,
Help gather the straying sheep. [Refrain]

3 The Shepherd still calls with tenderest voice,
"O where are My straying sheep?"
When lost ones are found, the angels rejoice:
Go search for the straying sheep. [Refrain]
