Adventures in Hymnwriting, Again



I wrote most of this back on the 5th, couldn't figure out the last verse, and lost the tune. This morning I figured out one and found the other. Based on the psalm and the other sheep/shepherd references, of course.




Strayed Like Sheep
Lyrics and Music: Maureen O'Brien, 1/8/03

We have all strayed like sheep,
But the Lord will keep
Looking for us till we are found.
He will bring us to rest
In the grass that's best;
He knows where the cool water's found.
A protecting rod
In the hands of God
Is a comforting sight to see,
And we won't be afraid
Of death's icy shade
When we walk through its dark valley.

Hear Him call. Know His voice.
We must make our choice:
To trust Him or the wolves and night.
He knows each sparrow's fall.
He will count and call;
He will seek us with all his might.
He will hold us near;
He will calm our fear;
We have only to turn around.
We have all strayed like sheep,
But the Lord will keep
Looking for us till we are found.
