Song background:

The words to this song came to me around Christmas time a few years ago when I was thinking about the little lost lamb that Jesus rescued from the mountain, and the 99 sheep who were safe on the hill. It ocurred to me that Jesus could also be compared to a little lamb when he was a babe, andthe  99 could also be 90,000 angels singing and celebrating his birth.

Lyrics: One Little Lamb

Verse 1:
One little lamb lost on the mountain, ninety-nine sheep on the hill;
Will the Shepherd leave the ninety and nine and search and search for the one? Yes he will!
He climbs up the mountain and searches, and then the little lost one he sees.
Then in the distance he sees the star shine brightly above the trees.

He came in the night beneath the star, while Bethlehem was asleep;
One mighty Shepherd came to earth to gather and feed His sheep.

Verse 2:
One little babe born in a stable, under one star in the sky;
Ninety thousand angels singing their song of One who came down from on high.
He climbs up the mountain and teaches, and blesses all the lame, deaf and blind;
He even brings loved ones back to life and heals hurting hearts and minds.

Verse 3:
Are you the lamb lost on the mountain? Is the Shepherd calling to you?
Will you hear His voice and run to His arms as all of His sheep often do?
He feeds us with words from the scriptures, and guides us so we won’t go astray;
Each little lamb is so precious to the King who was born that day.
