The Message Bible says it this way:

God did not call your name to abandon you in the wilderness. He sent you a Helper to be with you forever.
A man had a hundred sheep – yet one night one of them was not to be found. So what did the man do? Did he say, “Ninety nine is enough.”? No!
He left the ninety nine to search for the one that was missing. He searched high and low and He didn't give up his search until the lost one was found.
And when He found it – He rejoiced over it. In fact he went around to his friends and told them the good news – and invited them to rejoice with him.
The Holy Spirit is an ever present helper! He never leaves & He never sleeps... He's the Helper we ALL need...
