Seeking the Lost

Hymn lyrics and Music by William A. Ogden
Verse 1
  • Seeking the lost, yes, kindly entreating
  • Wanderers on the mountain astray;
  • “Come unto Me,” His message repeating,
  • Words of the Master speaking today.
  • Going afar (going afar)
  • Upon the mountain (upon the mountain)
  • Bringing the wan(bringing the wan)d’rer back again, back again,
  • Into the fold (into the fold)
  • Of my Redeemer (of my Redeemer)
  • Jesus the Lamb (Jesus the Lamb) for sinners slain, for sinners slain.
Verse 2
  • Seeking the lost and pointing to Jesus
  • Souls that are weak and hearts that are sore,
  • Leading them forth in ways of salvation,
  • Showing the path to life evermore.
Verse 3
  • Thus would I go on missions of mercy,
  • Following Christ from day unto day,
  • Cheering the faint and raising the fallen,
  • Pointing the lost to Jesus, the Way.
