A little lamb went straying Among the




A little lamb went straying,
Among the hills one day,
Leaving its faithful shepherd,
Because it loved to stray ;
And while the sun shone brightly
It knew no thought of fear,
For flowers around were blooming,
And balmy was the air.


But night came over quickly,
The hollow breezes blew,
The sun soon ceased its shining,
All dark and dismal grew ;
The little lamb stood bleating,
As well indeed it might,
So far from home and shepherd,
And on so dark a night.


But ah ! the faithful shepherd,
Soon missed the little thing,
And onward went to seek it,
It home again to bring;
And sought on hill and valley,
And called it by its name,
He sought, nor ceased his seeking
Until he found his lamb.


Then to his gentle bosom,
The little lamb he pressed,
And as he bore it homeward
He fondly it caressed ;
The little lamb was happy
To find itself secure ;
And happy, too, the shepherd,
Because his lamb he bore.


And won't you love the Shepherd,
So gentle and so kind,
Who came from brightest glory,
His little lambs to find ?
To make them, oh, so happy.
Rejoicing in His love,
Till every lamb be gathered
Safe in His home above.
