1 Far, far away from the Shepherd’s care,
Out on the mountains cold and bare,
There one had strayed from the sheltering fold,
And wandered far from the gates of gold.

Refrain:
There many lay in the Shepherd’s fold,
While one was far from the gates of gold;
Out on the desert, through sin’s dark night,
Wandered afar till the morning light.

2 The Shepherd said, Though the way is steep,
I go to rescue My lost sheep;
Out on the desert far away,
He hastens while ’tis yet today. [Refrain]

3 The Shepherd found the lamb once lost,
That o’er the barren hills had crossed;
He took it in His tender arms,
And sheltered it from desert storms. [Refrain]

4 A sinner out in the desert cold,
Was wandering far from the Shepherd’s fold;
Through chilling winds of sin’s long night,
Redeemed at last by Gospel light. [Refrain]
