Verse 1:

Sins of pleasure,

Drew me out alone

The world enticed me,

With lusts for things I should not own-

 

Chorus:

I was the one,

The sheep that left the fold

I was the one,

I thought I'd like it on my own-

But what I found was fear,

What I lost was hope,

Jesus heard my cries,

And carried me on His shoulders-

Back where I belong,

I was the one,

The sheep that left the fold,

I was the one,

I owe my all to Him

 

Verse 2:

In the distance,

Grass looks greener still

But I remember,

The pain and suff'ring that's concealed-

 

Ending:

I was the one

The sheep that left the fold

I was the one,

I owe my all to Him

I was the one
