ASTRAY




The fold was warm, the Shepherd kind
Watched o'er his lambs at play;
And tears dropped from his gentle eyes,
One lamb had gone astray.

Who is the one astray?
Who is the one astray?
The Shepherd's heart is sad today,
For one has gone astray.



The night is dark, the stars are hid,
The storm comes on apace;
O Shepherd, wait until the dawn
Thy lost one's feet to trace.

Who is the one astray?
Who is the one astray?
The Shepherd's heart is sad today,
For one has gone astray.



The way is dark, the rocks are steep.
My foes are fierce and wild;
But I will traverse waste and deep
To bring back home my child.

Who is the one astray?
Who is the one astray?
The Shepherd's heart is sad today,
For one has gone astray.



The Shepherd found his wandering one
Out on the mountain cold;
He laughed for joy, and carried it,
And brought it to the fold.

Yes, I am the one astray,
Yes, I am the one astray,
His tender love has won my heart,
And I'll no Ionger stray.
