Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Looking for Me

Full 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]
