Chord Progression: (C F Fm C) (Ebdim Dm G7 C)
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 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.
“I find, I walk, I love, but, O the whole
Of love is but my answer, Lord, to thee;
For thou wert long beforehand with my soul,
Always thou lovedst me [anonymous, 1904],” Systematic Theology (ref#63, p708).
