� 2008 Carden's Design. All Rights Reserved.
  1. 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.
  2. �Lord, Thou hast here Thy ninety and nine;
    Are they not enough for Thee?�
    But the Shepherd made answer: �This of Mine
    Has wandered away from Me.
    And although the road be rough and steep,
    I go to the desert to find My sheep.�
  3. But none of the ransomed ever knew
    How deep were the waters crossed;
    Nor how dark was the night the Lord passed through
    Ere He found His sheep that was lost.
    Out in the desert He heard its cry;
    �Twas sick and helpless and ready to die.
  4. �Lord, whence are those blood-drops all the way,
    That mark out the mountain�s track?�
    �They were shed for one who had gone astray
    Ere the Shepherd could bring him back.�
    �Lord, whence are Thy hands so rent and torn?�
    �They�re pierced tonight by many a thorn.�
  5. And all through the mountains, thunder-riv�n,
    And up from the rocky steep,
    There arose a glad cry to the gate of heav�n,
    �Rejoice! I have found My sheep!�
    And the angels echoed around the throne,
    �Rejoice, for the Lord brings back His own!�
