There Were Ninety And Nine That Safely Lay
In 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 Shepherd’s Care;

And, Although The Road Be Rough And Steep,
I Go To The Desert To Find My Sheep,

‘Rejoice, I Have Found My Sheep!’
And The Angels Echoed Around The Throne,
‘Rejoice, For The Lord Brings Back His Own!’
‘Rejoice, For.
