I will arise and seek Thy face,
For I have wandered far from Thee;
O Blessed Lord, extend Thy grace,
And in Thy mercy pity me.
Thou knowest my wanderings in the wild,
The longings of my soul that burn;
Wilt Thou not seek Thy erring child,
Who fain from waywardness would turn?
Thou knowest the paths my feet have trod,
And Thou alone canst bring me back;
My hungering soul cries out to God,
Within Whose home there is no lack.
O Jesus, Shepherd of my soul,
Didst Thou not come to seek and find?
To lead the lost by wise control,
And tend with love surpassing kind?
I will arise and seek Thy face;
Yea, Lord, arise and seek Thou me,
And bring me in Thy plenteous grace,
Where I shall safely dwell with Thee.
