1 I sought the Lord, and afterward I knew
he moved my soul to seek him, seeking me;
it was not I that found, O Savior true;
no, I was found, was found of thee.
2 Thou didst reach forth thy hand and mine enfold;
I walked and sank not on the storm-vexed sea;
'twas not so much that love on thee took hold
as thou, dear Lord, on me.
3 I find, I walk, I love; but, oh, the whole
of love is but my answer, Lord, to thee!
For thou wast long beforehand with my soul;
always thou lovedst me.
