We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Looking for Me

Representative Text

1 I was a captive, but mercy released me,
I was in darkness, but now I can see;
Over the mountain, where lonely I wandered,
Jesus, my Savior, came looking for me.

Refrain:
Wonderful Savior, wonderful Savior!
Now and forever my boasting shall be;
Over the mountain, where lonely I wandered,
Jesus, my Savior, came looking for me. [Refrain]

2 Weeping, I longed for the rapture of pardon,
Longed from my burden of sin to be free;
Then as I lifted my earnest petition,
Jesus, my Savior, came looking for me. [Refrain]

3 Filled with the fullness of perfect salvation,
Washed in the blood that was shed on the tree;
This my rejoicing through ages eternal:
Jesus, my Savior, came looking for me. [Refrain]

4 Oh, for the harp of a seraph to praise Him!
Oh, for the tongue of an angel to sing;
Glory to Jesus, my blessed Redeemer,
I am adopted, the child of a King. [Refrain]
