Seeking Sparks

orchidee



Tune: St Stephen

('In Christ there is no east or west')

*********

Lord you did choose to me befriend

To help and me defend

Though I did not care, to you turn

'Til of grace I did learn

 

That spark, that seed, you planted in

My heart, sought it to win

In your love, called me to yourself

I partake of your wealth

 

You died for me, did take my place

And for the human race

Did bear our sins, then rose again

No end of glories then

 

Though for a good man one may dare

To die, that way to fare

Yet I here all unworthily

Trust you to save fully

 

Your plan, your purpose, here reveal

Help us persevere still

Through all of life, varied events

Seek you with good intents

 

You found me, who was sheep astray

Brought me from night to day

Fan the flame of love in my heart

To serve you all, each part
