Verse 1:

E          A

Sins of pleasure,

C#m               B        E

Drew me out alone

                    A

The world enticed me,

                     C#m                      B

With lusts for things I should not own-

 

Chorus:

               E       A

I was the one,

       C#m                     B

The sheep that left the fold

               E       A

I was the one,

                   C#m             B

I thought I'd like it on my own-

                 E              F#m7

But what I found was fear,

           A           B

What I lost was hope,

         G#m7      A

Jesus heard my cries,

       C#m    B              A

And carried me on His shoulders-

F#m7               B

Back where I belong,

               E      A

I was the one,

       C#m                     B

The sheep that left the fold,

               E      A

I was the one,

  C#m              B

I owe my all to Him

 

Verse 2:

E        A

In the distance,

C#m               B        E

Grass looks greener still

           A

But I remember,

                       C#m                B

The pain and suff'ring that's concealed-

 

Ending:

               E       A

I was the one,

       C#m                     B

The sheep that left the fold

               E      A

I was the one,

  C#m              B

I owe my all to Him

               E

I was the one
