The Lost Sheep
Alfred U. Soord (1868–1915)

Seeking the lost, yes, kind­ly en­treat­ing
Wanderers on the mount­ain as­tray;
Come unto Me, His mes­sage re­peat­ing,
Words of the Mas­ter speak­ing to­day.


Going afar (go­ing afar)
Upon the mount­ain (up­on the mount­ain)
Bringing the wan­der­er back again, back again,
Into the fold (in­to the fold)
Of my Re­deem­er (of my Re­deem­er)
Jesus the Lamb for sin­ners slain, for sin­ners slain.

Seeking the lost and point­ing to Je­sus
Souls that are weak and hearts that are sore,
Leading them forth in ways of sal­va­tion,
Showing the path to life ev­er­more.


Thus would I go on mis­sions of mer­cy,
Following Christ from day un­to day,
Cheering the faint and rais­ing the fall­en,
Pointing the lost to Je­sus, the Way.
