Lost Sheep

Sometimes I leave the beaten path...and go my way alone
...And many are the sins for which...Some day I must atone
...I know I should not do it but...I let my wisdom stray...
And then the sunlight disappears...And all the skies are gray
...Ane then my thoughts become confused...My soul is
filled with fear...And every smile that mignt have been...Is
turned unto a tear...I wander in a wilderness...That seems to
have no end...And I am lost without a light...And never any
friend...But somehow in the darkest night...Wherever I may
roam...My Shepherd reaches out His hand...And leads me
gently home.

James J, Metcalfe
