1 Seek ye first, not earthly pleasure,
Fading joy and failing treasure,
But the love that knows no measure,
Seek ye first, seek ye first.

2 Seek ye first God’s peace and blessing;
Ye have all if this possessing:
Come, your need and sin confessing,
Seek Him first, seek Him first.

3 Seek this first—be pure and holy;
Like the Master, meek and lowly;
Yielded to His service wholly:
Seek this first, seek this first.

4 Seek the coming of His kingdom;
Seek the souls around, to win them,
Seek to Jesus Christ to bring them;
Seek this first, seek this first.

5 Seek this first, His promise trying,
It is sure—all need supplying—
Heav’nly things—on Him relying—
Seek ye first, seek ye first.
