"SNOWFLAKE"

There was a lamb called Snow-flake,
A white woolly lamb was she.
She loved to play on the steep hillside,
Happy, wild and free.
-But she was kind of naughty,
She liked to wander and stray.
-So the good shepherd talked to her,
And this is what he had to say:

Chorus 1
"Hey, Snowflake, can you hear me call?
Hey, Snowflake, I don't want you to fall.
Stay closer, it's best to obey,
'Cause I'm the shepherd and I know the way."

One day when it was sunny,
Snowflake wandered off on he own.
She didn't obey when the shepherd called,
"Now it's time to go home."
-She was so excited,
She didn't see the sky turning grey;
There was a thunderstorm moving in,
But she'd for gotten what the shepherd had to say:

Chorus 2
"Hey, Snowflake, can you hear me call? [Hear me call?]
Hey, Snowflake, I don't want you to fall.
Stay closer, it's best to obey,
I love you, and I know the way."

Back at home the good shepherd
Was counting all the sheep in his fold.
Then he noticed that one was gone
Snowflake was out on her own!
-So he went to find her in the
Middle of the stormy night.
He called aloud to his little lamb,
And prayed that she would be all right.

Chorus 3
"Hey, Snowflake, where could you be? [Snowflake?]
Hey, Snowflake, can you hear me?
I miss you, oh, where did you roam?
Oh, Snowflake, oh, please come home!"

Bridge
Through the dark ran Snowflake,
Then she tumbled down the steep hillside.
She was trapped in the thorny brambles,
Helpless and alone, she cried.
She was so sorry she had disobeyed.
--She felt so lost and lonely, and afraid.

Then the shepherd found her,
And carried her back in his arms.
Snowflake knew he had risked his life
To rescue her from danger and harm.
-And do you know that Snowflake
Changed from her wandering ways;
She grew to be a real good sheep,
'Cause she remembered what the shepherd had to say:

Chorus 4
"Hey, Snowflake, can you hear me call? [Hear me call?]
Hey, Snowflake, I don't want you to fall.
Stay closer, it's best to obey,
'Cause I'm the shepherd, and I know the way.

Chorus 5
"Hey, Snowflake, can you hear me call? [Hear me call?]
Hey, Snowflake, I don't want you to fall.
Stay closer, it's best to obey,
'Cause I'm the shepherd, and I love you.
I'm the shepherd, and I know the way."
