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.
