He moved my soul to seek him

The hymn, “I Sought the Lord”. The author is unknown. It is recorded hauntingly by Bifrost Arts

I sought the Lord, and afterward I knew

he moved my soul to seek him, seeking me.

It was not I that found, O Savior true;

no I was found of Thee.

Thou didst reach forth thy hand and mine enfold;

I walked and sank not on the storm-vexed sea

’twas not so much that I on thee took hold

as Thou dear Lord on me.

I find, I walk, I love, but oh, the whole of love

is but my answer , Lord, to thee!

For Thou wert long beforehand with my soul;

always Thou lovest me.
