           G                    D      G
There were ninety and nine that safely lay
                      D
In the shelter of the fold
    G
But one was out on the hills away
    D                     G
Far off from the gates of gold
 B7         Em         B7       Em
Away on the mountains, wild and bare
 G                   D          G
Away from the tender shepherd's care
 G                   D          G
Away from the tender shepherd's care

G  C  D  G

"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 though the road be rough and steep
I go to the desert to find my sheep
I go to the desert to find my sheep"

But none of the ransomed ever knew
How deep were the waters crossed
Nor how dark was the night that the Lord passed through
Ere He found His sheep that was lost
Out in the desert He heard its cry
Sick and helpless and ready to die
Sick and helpless and ready to die

But all through the mountains, thunder riven
And up from the rocky steep
There rose a glad cry at the gates of Heaven
"Rejoice, I have found my sheep!"
And the angels echoed around the throne
"Rejoice for the Lord brings back His own!
Rejoice for the Lord brings back His own!"
