Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

564. Seeking for Me

1 Jesus, my Saviour, to Bethlehem came,
Born in a manger to sorrow and shame;
Oh, it was wonderful — blest be His name!
Seeking for me, for me!
Seeking for me! For me!
Seeking for me! For me!
Oh, it was wonderful — blest be His name!
Seeking for me, for me!

2 Jesus, my Saviour, on Calvary’s tree,
Paid the great debt and my soul He set free;
Oh, it was wonderful — how could it be?
Dying for me, for me!
Dying for me! For me!
Dying for me! For me!
Oh, it was wonderful — how could it be?
Dying for me, for me!

3 Jesus, my Saviour, the same as of old,
While I was wand’ring afar from the fold,
Gently and long did He plead with my soul,
Calling for me, for me!
Calling for me! For me!
Calling for me! For me!
Gently and long did He plead with my soul,
Calling for me, for me!

4 Jesus, my Saviour, shall come from on high,—
Sweet is the promise as weary years fly;
Oh, I shall see Him descending the sky,
Coming for me, for me!
Coming for me! For me!
Coming for me! For me!
Oh, I shall see Him descending the sky,
Coming for me, for me!
