The Good Shepherd – “The Ninety and Nine”

by Jim on 19 June 2017

Christ’s love for the lost was celebrated in the old song The Ninety and Nine, written by a loving sister in the hope that her brother had been saved before his death. It was put to music after her death by the famous musician Ira D. Sankey.

It seems like many songs celebrate what we do for Christ, and maybe what He has done in general for us. But the highly personal, passionate nature of this song is rare.

If you’re a fan of men’s choirs, you may enjoy the rendition below (audio only). For more reflections on the song, see my Dad’s article: The Ninety and Nine
