The Black Sheep
Once there lived a little sheep,
who went a different way.
Some would say
the sheep was black, or that he went astray.
Because he thought so differently he soon was cast aside.
His heart was very heavy and lonely deep inside.
But then the Shepherd found him and drew him to his side.
He felt so safe to share his heart; confessing while he cried.
At last the sheep felt special – he now was fully known
by the lamb who became our Shepherd and claimed us for his own.
