Hymn Text: That Which Was Lost

Title: That Which Was Lost

Meter: 8 8 8 8

Topic: fellowship, repentance, charity



A single coin among the ten

A single sheep among the herd

Forgotten, and not seen again

Unless a shepherd can be stirred


To turn away from all but one

And search until the lost is found

A Shepherd like God’s holy Son

Who searches all the world around.


A single son who turns away

A single daughter lost to sin

Despite those who beg them to stay

Their change must come from deep within.


Like prodigals who waste their wealth

The sting of sin can make them turn,

And save their flagging spirit’s health

As they humbly to home return.


Each single one is in God’s sight

Each is a child whom He would save

If we let Him lead us aright

He will the path with mercy pave.


So venture out to seek the lost

For priceless is each that we find

And think not on the length or cost

But shepherd all of humankind.
