5985. Seeking the Lost (Buchanan)

1. Will you go and speak to the lost ones here
To the ones who have gone astray?
Will you lead them back to the Shepherd’s fold
From their wand’rings in sin’s dark way?

Will you seek them now,
Will you seek them now?
Will you show them the way?
Will you show them the way?
Some one may be lost,
That you might lead home,
To that bright land of perfect day.

2. Will you go and speak to the sinners blind
And who walk in the midnight gloom?
Will you bear some light to their darkened mind?
Will you tell them their coming doom? [Refrain]

3. Will you tell them all if they will believe
That their souls will be truly blest?
For the Savior said that they shall receive
Precious blessings of peace and rest. [Refrain]

4. Will you go and tell them the Savior died
And provided for them the way?
If they fully trust in the Crucified
He will pardon their sins today. [Refrain]
