From the recording The Coin, The Sheep and the Son

The parables from Luke 15.  Also one of my favorites. I love this one.  Great cello work.

Lyrics

A bride Lights a lamp and searches every corner For her prize, A wedding gift intended to adorn her She will never give up ‘til it’s found His eyes Gaze upon his sheep safe in pasture He hears a cry Runs to save the one who’s near disaster He will never give up ‘til it’s found So it goes, all around Hopeless souls, few are found There is someone’s prize, there is someone’s child There is someone’s loved one lost in the wil We must search and pray ‘til they’re reconciled To the one who seeks The Coin, The Sheep, and The Son Ever since his youngest son had wandered down that highway For just a glimpse The father waits and watches just one more day He will never give up ‘til he’s home So it goes, all around Hopeless souls, few are found But what of us who are homeward bound? Will we search, will we shine? You and me Were like that coin and sheep ‘til someone found us How can we Close our eyes and hearts to those around us? We must never give up ‘til they’re home, we must never give up There is someone’s prize, there is someone’s child There is someone’s loved one lost in the wil We must search and pray ‘til they’re reconciled To the one who seeks The Coin, The Sheep, and The Son
