1 Israel’s sheep scattered far and wide,
Wandering on with no shepherd to guide,
Far from the Saviour who for them has died;
What are you doing for them?

How Jesus loved them! but we have despised,
Forgotten, neglected, in scorn undisguised.
Think you to face Him and hear His “Well done,”
With Israel, His chosen, left dying alone?

2 “First to the Jew” was the order He gave;
First to the Jew came Jesus to save;
First to the Jew when sins He forgave;
What are you doing for them? [Refrain]

3 Hid for a moment His face at their call,
Soon in His mercy He’ll gather them all;
Loved for their fathers, e’en far tho’ they fall;
What are you doing for them? [Refrain]
