ASKING SEEKING FINDING




Ask, and ye shall receive;
On this my hope I build:
I ask forgiveness, and believe
My prayer shall be fulfilled.


Seek, and expect to find:
Wounded to death in soul,
I seek the Saviour of mankind;
His touch can make me whole.


Knock, and with patience wait,
Faith shall free entrance win:
I stand and knock at mercy’s gate;
Lord Jesus! let me in.


How should I ask in vain?
Seek, and not find thee, Lord?
Knock, and yet no admittance gain?
Is it not in thy word?


Time, ruin, change, decay,
The lines can never blot,
Thou heaven and earth shall pass away,
Thy word, O God! shall not.


No, Lord, thou'lt ne'er deceive;
Thy promises are sure;
In thy good time I shall receive;
What can I ask for more?


---Alternative verses---


Knock, and with patience wait,
By faith free entrance gain:
I stand and knock at mercy’s gate;
Till I thy grace obtain.


Shall I then ask in vain?
Seek, and not find the Lord?
Knock, and yet no admittance gain?
And doubt thy holy word?
