Twas A Sheep Not a Lamb – Here is a really cool poem by Minnie Lee Bovender about it was a sheep not a lamb. It is a must read!

Heather of SimplySpokn shared with me this poem on a bookmark she had and I had to share it with my readers.

Twas A Sheep Not A Lamb

by Minnie Lee Bovender

Twas a sheep, not a lamb, that strayed away

In the parable Jesus told.

A grown-up sheep that had gone astray

From the ninety and nine in the fold.

Out in the meadows out in the cold

Twas a sheep the Good Shepherd sought

Back to the flock, and into the fold

Twas a sheep the Good Shepherd brought

Why, for the sheep, should we earnestly long

And so earnestly hope and pray?

Because there is danger, if they go wrong,

They will lead the young lambs astray.

For the lambs follow the sheep, you know,

Wherever the sheep may stray,

If the sheep go wrong, it will not be long

Till the lambs are as wrong as they

So, with the sheep, we earnestly plead

For the sake of the lambs today,

If the lambs are lost, what a terrible cost

Some sheep may have to pay.

Twas A Sheep Not A Lamb
