557. Seek Where You May to Find a Way

1 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 overthrows
All evil foes;
Through Him I more than conquer.

2 Seek whom ye may
To be your stay,
None can redeem his brother.
All helpers failed;
This man prevailed,
The God-man, and none other.
Our Servant-King
Of whom we sing.
We're justified,
Because He died,
The gio;tu beomg guiltless.

3 Seek Him alone,
Who did atone,
Who did your souls deliver.
O seek Him first,
All ye who thirst
For grace that fails you never.
In ev'ry need
Seek Him indeed;
To ev'ry heart
He will impart
His blessings without measure.

4 My heart's delight,
My crown most bright,
O Christ, my joy forever.
Not wealth nor pride
Nor fortune's tide
Our bonds of love shall sever.
You are my Lord;
Your precious Word
Shall guide my way
And help me stay,
Forever in Your presence.
