No, 43.            The Ninety and Nine.

" Reioice with Me, for I have found My sheep which was lost."—Luke xv. 6.
•• Lord, Thou hast here Thy ninety and nine;
" Lord, whence are those blood-drops all the way
Are they not enough for Thee ? "
That mark out the mountain's track ? "
But the Shepherd made answer : " This of Mine
"They were shed for one who had gone astray
Has wandered away from Me;
Ere the Shepherd could bring him back."
And although the road may be rough and steep
" Lord, whence are Thy hands so rent and torn ?"
I go to the desert to find My sheep."
" They are pierced to-night by many a thorn."
But none of the ransomed ever knew
But all through the mountains, thunder-riven,
How deep were the waters crossed; [through
And up from the rocky steep,
Nor how dark was the night that the Lord passed
There arose a cry to the gate of heaven :
Ere He found His sheep that was lost:
" Rejoice ! I have found My sheep ! "
Out in the desert He heard its cry—
And the angels echoed around the throne,
Sick, and helpless, and ready to die.
" Rejoice! for the Lord brings back His own 1"
