Seeker of the Sinner

"God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God. Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no not one" (Psalm 53:2,3). "The Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost" (Luke 19:10).

We wouldn't even give a thought
To seek for God above
Unless the Lord Himself had sought
To save us by His love.

God looked down from heaven's throne
To see if even one
Would seek the Lord all on his own:
He found that there was none.

Why were we so deaf and blind
To never count the cost?
How good was God to seek and find,
And then to save the lost!

Thank You, Lord, that You would seek
To save us by Your grace.
When we were enemies, so weak,
You suffered in our place.

Lord, we worship You today,
Our risen Lord and Savior.
We who once were gone astray
Are saved now by Your favor!
