Jesus Spoke in Parables

He Loves All of Them

I left home, walked towards green pastures
A hundred of them followed me by nature
Cannot turn around and see them scatter
Sent them forward to herd them together
Counted them one, two, three, and ninety nine
All the ninety nine and one more are mine
Where is the sheep that wandered out?
The herd I left, searched all places of doubt
………………………………………………..Oh! There! Behind the bush, my beloved
………………………………………………..The little one that I saved with my blood

………….She Needs All of Them

………….I received all the ten bright commandments
………….That my Father had sent on a necklace
………….All the ten laws decorated my neck
………….Practiced them everyday without a hitch
………….This night one rolled away somewhere
………….But I made a search everywhere
………….With my lamp and broom, I swept the house
………….Ah! Here! I found the lost silver piece
………….Called my neighbours and told – Rejoice!
………….For through Him, I found my eternal peace

……………………………………………………………………………

Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence
of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth
Luke 15:10 (KJV)

For God so loved the world, He gave His only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have
everlasting life – John 3:16 (KJV)
