Lyrics

Jesus is seeking the lost ones,
Out in the mountains so cold,
Longing to find them and bring them
Into the sheltering fold.

Refrain

Tenderly, tenderly calling,
Hear the good Shepherd today;
Lovingly, lovingly seeking
Those who have wandered away.

Jesus is seeking the lost ones,
Down in the valleys of sin;
Pleading with them, and entreating,
Come, My belovèd, come in.

Refrain

Jesus is seeking the lost ones,
Out in the highways today,
Longing to graciously lead them
Into life’s beautiful way.

Refrain

Jesus is seeking the lost ones,
Straying in darkness tonight,
Fain would He lovingly guide thee,
Into His dwellings of light.
