“Amazing Grace”
by John Newton

In the play, “Lost” becomes “Found,” and discovers the healing, saving power of Jesus.  The song is used  to highlight and emphasize the significance of this scene. Later, the song is used again as the new “Found” becomes “Teacher” when she helps another “Lost” become “Found.”

“Jesus Loves Me”
by Anna B. Warner

This simple melody plays softly behind the scene in which “Lost” struggles with God’s love.  “Lost” asks, “How can God love me?” “Teacher assures “Lost” of God’s pure love as he leads “Lost” to the Lord. 

The mask that “Lost” wears is an image of her sin.  As “Lost” expresses her desire to accept God’s love, her mask is removed piece by piece.

“His Name Is Wonderful”
by Audrey Mieir

As “Lost” accepts the Lord’s love, “Teacher”
 quotes scripture as he removes parts of her mask.  
 The power of this scene is enhanced by the stirring
 rendition of this beloved hymn.

“Take My Life, And Let It Be”
by Frances Havergal

This emotional hymn is used as a background
 to the scene in which “Lost” is symbolically
 “baptized” by “Teacher.”  “Lost” is hesitant at first; 
 but then she yields her whole self to the Lord. (Stage the scene according to your own views on baptism.)

“Nothing But The Blood of Jesus”
by Robert Lowry

After “Lost” has accepted Jesus, and becomes
 “Found,” “Teacher” celebrates with her and talks
 about all the wonderful things that God has to offer
 her. This upbeat version of the powerful hymn
 accentuates the thrill that “Found” now feels.

“I’d Rather Have Jesus”
by Rhea F. Miller

Out of gratitude for being freed from her ugliness,
 “Found” wants to do all she can to please God.  Her
 “Teacher” agrees to take her on a journey to discover what it
 is that pleases God the most. “Found,” however, insists
 that she must walk on stilts, she claims it is easier for others
 to see her if she is above them. “Teacher” admonishes
 “Found,” telling her that unless she first learns to
 humble herself, her journey is futile.

“Found’s” struggle with humility is highlighted by the
 pointed words of this hymn. Eventually, “Found” decides to
 let go of her pride and follow “Teacher” on his journey.
