I was a wandering Sheep

 

1. I was a wandering sheep,
    I did not love the fold;
    I did not love my Shepherd’s voice,
    I would not be controlled.
    I was a wayward child,
    I did not love my home;
    I did not love my Father’s voice,
    I loved afar to roam.

 

2. The Shepherd sought His sheep,
    The Father sought His child;
    They followed me o’er vale and hill,
    O’er deserts waste and wild:
    They found me nigh to death,
    Famished and faint and lone;
    They bound me with the bands of love,
    They saved the wandering one.

 

3. Jesus my Shepherd is;
    ‘Twas He that loved my soul,
    ‘Twas He that washed me in His blood,
    ‘Twas He that made me whole;
    ‘Twas He that sought the lost,
    That found the wandering sheep,
    ‘Twas He that brought me to the fold,
    ‘Tis He that still doth keep.

 

4. I was a wandering sheep,
    I would not be controlled;
    But now I love my Shepherd’s voice,
    I love, I love the fold.
    I was a wayward child,
    I once preferred to roam;
    But now I love my Father’s voice,
    I love, I love His home.
