A Hymn: Sinner Is Like A Lost Sheep

Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days


Composer’s Foreword

I do not know how to put my composed words into tonic solfa format, but having learnt however remotely how to compose songs using local Yoruba format, I decide to come with a work around on how to make my songs internationally acceptable, therefore, I have been mimicking some hymns which I believe anyone who knows how to sing such hymn globally would be able to sing along with me my composed song using the tune that I have used beneath.

Having said this, I sincerely invite you to join me in singing this newly composed song, because I know music yea songs is one of the things that makes heart merry lifting hearts out of the cauldron of darkness that the enemies may have subjected people to and draws heart closer to God and his blessings.

Praying, hoping and trusting that you will be blessed with the song as you sing along with me and if you do not know the tune, I sincerely trust that God will bless your hearts, homes and all that is yours as you read the wordings of the newly composed song.

The Composed Song

1. Like a lost sheep that has gone astray

We ‘ve turned everyone to his own way

And the Lord has left the remainin’ sheep

To search out the lost sheep

2. Like a lost sheep that has gone astray

We ‘ve sinned and have come short

Of the glory of the Lord God

Not worthy of being called your child

3. Like a lost sheep that has gone astray

We ‘ve wandered in the wilderness

Yea in wilderness of sin

Scroll to Continue

Unable to find our way out

4. Like a lost sheep that has gone astray

We ‘ve been groping in darkness

Even in the darkness of sin

Caused by disobedient of our fore fathers

5. Like a good shepherd whom the Lord is

He has been searching for us

Even in the wilderness that

We ‘ve lost in He comes to us

6. On mountains and in the valleys

The Lord is searching everywhere

To seek and to save all of us

Who has been lost ‘ven in our sins

7. God has sent his son to the world

Who also is the Light

To shine his light to dark places

To save those groping in darkness

8. He has asked us to turn to Him

So that we will be saved

Turn ye unto me says the Lord

And I will turn unto You
