Lord, I've strayed too many miles away from home
Oh! Lord how hard I've prayed
(But I kept on goin' the wrong way)
I've have gone too many miles
(away from home, away from home)
Oh! Lord I've strayed too many
(miles away from my own home)
Oh! Lord will you help a poor lost sheep?
(Back into your fold, back into your fold)
Oh! Lord will you leave the safe ninety-nine
(that are safe and secure in the sheep fold)
And cumin' rescue me. I've been a poor
little lamb that has lost his way!
Oh! Lord am I still saved after that
(salvation pray I'd pray as a mere
lad) Or am I lost for an eternity?
(Lord I don't know which
way to go, way to go)
Lord you know the right way to go
Oh! Lord will you take me by
my hand and lead me to
(your heavenly promise
land) Maybe there I
can finally become a man?
Your prodigal son has
(decided to follow you)
Love in Christ Jesus!
