Leaving The Ninety Nine

(Deborah Taylor)

 

Lord, you left the ninety nine

 to look for one so lost

you searched until you found her

and you didn't count the costs

 

She's lost again Sweet Lord

and she cannot find her way

Will you leave the ninety nine

come looking for this stray

 

You know she should know better

than to have ventured out alone

Will you leave the ninety nine

To bring this lost lamb home

 

How many times will it take Sweet Lord

Seventy times seven

Will you leave the ninety nine

Redeem this soul to Heaven

 

This lamb is lost and broken

there are wounds that cut so deep

Will you leave the ninety nine

Come searching for your sheep

 

She's tango'd with the devil

been stuck in the mire of this world

Will you leave the ninety nine Sweet Lord

Come and claim your little girl
