Set Hearts to Seek Him

"Such as set their hearts to seek the LORD God of Israel came to Jerusalem" (2 Chronicles 11:16).  "Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in His ways… it shall be well with thee" (Psalm 128:1,2).  "Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death… The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich" (Proverbs 10:2,22).  "God… giveth grace to the humble.  Humble yourselves therefore… casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you" (1 Peter 5:5-7). 

It's good for us to take the action
To set our hearts to seek the Lord
And set aside the vain distraction
So void of heaven's true reward. 

It's good for us to fear our God
And set our hearts to give Him praise
No matter who may count it odd
That we are walking in His ways. 

The treasures sought for by the lost
Shall profit nothing in the end. 
True riches came at such a cost
Through Christ, too great to comprehend! 

Lord, set our hearts to seek Your face
And humbly cast our care on You
As we explore Your wondrous grace,
The only riches that are true.
