Sought the Lord

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

Thou did reach forth, thy hand in 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

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



“This song tends to sneak up on me as I sing it. It's easy to think about us following and searching for God, but God, ever faithfully, seeks us as we are, wherever we are. God has loved us long before we came to be, and meets us wherever we are.

"We really enjoyed Seth letting his fingerstyle guitar skills loose on this song. The two guitars play off of one another in a kind of dance that is so fun to sing with.” - Jackson
