William A. Ogden (1841–1897)


Hark! ’tis the Shep­herd’s voice I hear
Out in the de­sert dark and drear,
Calling the sheep who’ve gone as­tray
Far from the Shep­herd’s fold away.


Bring them in, bring them in,
Bring them in from the fields of sin;
Bring them in, bring them in,
Bring the wan­d’ring ones to Je­sus.

Who’ll go and help this Shep­herd kind,
Help Him the wand’ring ones to find?
Who’ll bring the lost ones to the fold,
Where they’ll be shel­tered from the cold?


Out in the de­sert hear their cry,
Out on the mount­ains wild and high;
Hark! ’tis the Mas­ter speaks to thee,
Go find My sheep where’er they be.
