Lovingly the Shepherd,
Seeking the lost sheep,
Found it tired and hungry
On the mountain steep.


Jesus paid the price, great the pain and loss;
To redeem the world, at great pain and loss.
To redeem the world, to redeem the world,
Jesus Christ laid down His life upon the cross.

Precious is the lost coin,
Sought with love and care,
And with joy the owner
Found her treasure rare.


Tenderly the Father
Welcomes home His son;
Though once dead he liveth,
Love at last has won.
