     1 Then drew near unto him all the publicans and sinners for to hear him. 2 And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them. 3 And he spake this parable unto them, saying, 4 What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? 5 And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 6 And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost. 7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance. 8 Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it? 9 And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost. 10 Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.(KJV)

1. In God, my faithful God, 
I trust when dark my road; 
Though many woes o’ertake me, 
Yet He will not forsake me. 
His love it is doth send them 
And, when ’tis best, will end them. 

2. My sins assail me sore, 
But I despair no more. 
I build on Christ, who loves me; 
From this Rock nothing moves me. 
To Him I all surrender, 
To Him, my soul’s Defender. 

3. If death my portion be, 
Then death is gain to me 
And Christ my Life forever, 
From whom death cannot sever. 
Come when it may, He’ll shield me, 
To Him I wholly yield me. 

4. 0 Jesus Christ, my Lord, 
So meek in deed and word, 
Thou once didst die to save us 
Because Thy love would have us 
Be heirs of heavenly gladness 
When ends this life of sadness. 

5. “So be it,” then, I say 
With all my heart each day. 
We, too, dear Lord, adore Thee. 
We sing for joy before Thee. 
Guide us while here we wander 
Until we praise Thee yonder.
