Little Lost Lambsie

sheep lamb new zealand

He had said to follow him
He had said she would be safe
He had said all would be well
Then how did Lambsie become so lost?

He had said he’d feed her daily
He had said they’d be waters clean
He had said he’d never leave her
Then how did Lambsie become so lost?

He had said to watch him closely
He had said to look straight ahead
He had said he’d lead her through the storms
Then how did Lambsie become so lost?

He had said he’d always love her
He had said she was his very own
He had said he’d always known her
Then how did Lambsie become so lost?

He had said she’d live forever
He had said to never fear
He had said he was her hiding place
Then how did Lambsie become so lost?

Little lost Lambsie
Oh! Little lost Lambsie
Do not worry
Dry your tears
He is looking for you right now
He won’t be long
So don’t give up
You may have wandered
Far and wide
You may have struggled
Keeping up
You may have questioned
His love for you
His need for you
His purpose for you
Oh! Little lost Lambsie
Don’t ever think
He doesn’t love you
He doesn’t need you
He has no purpose for you
Little lost Lambsie
He loves you
He needs you
He has a purpose for you
You are his
You belong
You belong with Him
He is your Shepherd

And when you are found
Know that He knew
Where you were
All along …

You were never lost
In His eyes
Only in your own
