SHEEP THAT WENT ASTRAY

SHEEP THAT WENT ASTRAY

They stood grazing, in the heat of the sun
All of the flock was content, except one
Always with his adventurous ways
This sheep of the flock decided to stray
Many of the other sheep warned him to stay
Regardless of what they had to say
His heart was filled with desire, and he ran away
Now a sheep without a Shepard, it wasn’t long, he was lost
It was around day break and darkness set in, and came frost
His sheared skin now cold, and he was feeling alone
He began to regret leaving, stubborn as he was, cleaving to his journey
A voice comes burning in his ears, “you there, come over here
Why did you leave your flock?”
Not seeing the sneaky wolf behind the rock
I’m on a journey he said
I’m tired of the flock, I want adventure instead
Come over here to the rock, and I will show you adventure
Then he painted a picture of the most richest pasture
He said he would take him and that he knew the master
Blinded and excited by the temptation, he was headed to disaster
As he began to move towards the rock
Suddenly he heard a loud bang, the wolf was shot
And fell from behind the rock, startled the sheep thought
I was almost eaten, and then he seen him holding his gun
The Shepard stood looking for one
Sheep that went astray

Luke 15 New International Version (NIV)

The Parable of the Lost Sheep
15 Now the tax collectors and sinners were all gathering around to hear Jesus. 2 But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.”

3 Then Jesus told them this parable: 4 “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? 5 And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders 6 and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ 7 I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
