Seek Where Ye May to Find a Way
Georg Weissel, 1623; German text
|Seek where ye may To find a way|
That leads to your salvation;
My heart is stilled, On Christ I build,
He is the one Foundation.
His Word is sure, His works endure;
He doth o'erthrow My every foe;
Through Him I more than conquer.
2. Seek whom ye may To be your stay;
|3. Seek Him alone, Who did atone,|
Who did your souls deliver;
Yea, seek Him first, All ye who thirst
For grace that faileth never.
In every need Seek Him indeed;
To every heart He will impart
His blessings without measure.
4. My heart's Delight, My Crown most bright,
|5. Hide not from me, I ask of Thee,|
Thy gracious face and favor.
Though floods of woe Should o'er me flow,
My faith shall never waver.
From pain and grief Grant sweet relief;
For tears I weep, Lord, let me reap
Thy heavenly joy and glory.
