|The Shepherd's Call
I wandered far from the fold where I was safe.
It wasn't long until I found I'd lost my way.
I cried with fear as the night began to fall.
One more lost lamb, but I heard the Shepherds call.
He saw my steps as they walked right into the dark.
Though I went astray, I never once left his heart.
That night long ago, how I still recall.
When I lost my way, then I heard the Shepherds call.
He left the fold to search out one that strayed.
Left ninety-nine for there was one to be saved.
There on that ledge one-step would have ended all.
I felt a hand, and I heard the Shepherds Call.
