My sheep … were scattered over the whole earth, and no one searched or looked for them.

Ezekiel 34:6

Not now; for I have wanderers in the distance,

And thou must call them in with patient love.

Not now; for I have sheep upon the mountains,

And thou must follow them where’er they rove.

Go with the name of Jesus to the dying,

And speak that name in all its living power.

Why should thy fainting heart grow chill and weary?

‘Canst thou not watch with Me one little hour?’
