1.	I sought the Lord, and afterward I knew 
	he moved my soul to seek him, seeking me. 
	It was not I that found, O Savior true; 
	no, I was found of thee.

2.	Thou didst reach forth thy hand and mine enfold; 
	I walked and sank not on the storm-vexed sea. 
	'Twas not so much that I on thee took hold, 
	as thou, dear Lord, on me.

3.	I find, I walk, I love, but oh, the whole 
	of love is but my answer, Lord, to thee! 
	For thou wert long beforehand with my soul; 
	always thou lovedst me.
