Wayward Sinner

By: Laurie Ragan Jenkins

Sometimes I just feel like

The little lost sheep

That the good Lord found

Leaving His flock of the perfect

Just to find a wayward sinner like me

How delighted the angels

In Heaven must have been

When I opened my lost heart

And let the sweet Lord in

Jesus came to find

The sinners that was lost

With no chance, no help, no Cross

Too many little sheep were lost

Our precious Lord felt our need

So He decided to pay our cost

If you want to be one of His seeds

Join in His flock be a sheep like me

Just open up your lost heart

Let the good Lord have His way

Angels will be singing in Heaven

On that very day
