Full Text

1 Go seek for the lost in the desert,
So hungry and starving and cold;
“Go into the highways and hedges,”
And bring them safe into the fold.

Seeking for thee,
Seeking for thee,
Jesus is seeking for thee,
Then come to His kingdom now waiting,
‘Tis ready for you and for me.

2 There’s life in those glorious mansions,
So freely ‘tis offered to thee,
The joy in His kingdom forever,
And this shall thy dwelling place be. [Refrain]

3 Then out of the regions of darkness,
Come into the portals of light,
He’s ready and willing to save you,
His wisdom will guide thee aright. [Refrain]
