There were ninety and nine that safely layIn the shelter of the fold.But one was out on the hills away,Far off from the gates of gold.Away on the mountains wild and bare.Away from the tender Shepherds care.Away from the tender Shepherds care.Lord, Thou hast here Thy ninety and nine;Are they not enough for Thee?But the Shepherd made answer: This of MineHas wandered away from Me;And although the road be rough and steep,I go to the desert to find My sheep,I go to the desert to find My sheep.But none of the ransomed ever knewHow deep were the waters crossed;Nor how dark was the night the Lord passed throughEre He found His sheep that was lost.Out in the desert He heard its cry,Sick and helpless and ready to die;Sick and helpless and ready to die.[b]Lord, whence are those blood drops all the wayThat mark out the mountains track?They were shed for one who had gone astrayEre the Shepherd could bring him back.Lord, whence are Thy hands so rent and torn?They are pierced tonight by many a thorn;They are pierced tonight by many a thorn.[/b]And all through the mountains, thunder rivenAnd up from the rocky steep,There arose a glad cry to the gate of Heaven,Rejoice! I have found My sheep!And the angels echoed around the throne,Rejoice, for the Lord brings back His own!Rejoice, for the Lord brings back His own![url=http://www.cyberhymnal.org/htm/n/i/90_and_9.htm]http://www.cyberhymnal.org/htm/n/i/90_and_9.htm[/url]
