Not the Ninety and Nine

Not the Ninety and Nine


Their names echo out on the
Mountain high
All but one lamb to the
Shepherd came nigh


The ninety and nine are safe
In the fold
The Shepherd leaves all
For the one in the cold


The Shepherd draws close
To His one little lamb
While thorns and briars
Make wounds in His hands


His touch is so gentle
To gather in
This precious lamb
To safety again


The oil of healing
Pours over its head
Close to the Shepherd and
Willingly led


The party begins for the
One lone and lost
Now found and loved and
Bought with a cost

Ps. 23:1
 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

John 10:11
I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
