Lyrics

Israel’s sheep, scattered far and wide,
Wandering on with no shepherd to guide,
Far from the Savior who for them has died;
What are you doing for them?

Refrain

How Jesus loved them! but we have despised,
Forgotten, neglected, in scorn undisguised;
Think you to face Him and hear His Well done,
With Israel, His chosen, left dying alone?

First to the Jew was the order He gave;
First to the Jew came Jesus to save;
First to the Jew when sins He forgave;
What are you doing for them?

Refrain

Hid for a moment His face at their call,
Soon in His mercy He’ll gather them all;
Loved for their fathers, e’en far tho’ they fall;
What are you doing for them?
