The Lonely Shepherd Boy

        Where are you going father this chilly eve
        Why do you leave your lonely flock all alone

        You know I’m still a young boy, not yet a man
        Can’t understand your reason why do you go

        You went away so quickly not a good bye
        I nearly cried my father, please hurry home

        Why did that star so brightly come from the skies
        Captured your eyes and led you so far away

        Somewhere I heard my father I think in my dreams
        A baby it seems is lying close by your side

        As you gaze on the manger the cattle may low
        But how will I know if you will ever come home

        What did I do to hurt you what have I done
        Have you a new son waiting, where have you gone
