Seeking the Lost Lyrics
1 Seeking the lost, yes, kindly entreating
Wanderers on the mountain astray;
“Come unto Me,” His message repeating,
Words of the Master speaking today.
Going afar upon the mountain,
Bringing the wand’rer back again, back again,
Into the fold of my Redeemer,
Jesus, the Lamb for sinners slain, for sinners slain.
2 Seeking the lost and pointing to Jesus
Souls that are weak and hearts that are sore,
Leading them forth in ways of salvation,
Showing the path to life evermore. (Chorus)
3 Thus would I go on missions of mercy,
Following Christ from day unto day,
Cheering the faint and raising the fallen,
Pointing the lost to Jesus, the Way. (Chorus)
Seeking the Lost Hymn Story
“Seeking the Lost” is a hymn that was written by William Augustine Ogden. Seeking the lost should be the goal of all Christians.
This hymn encourages us to go out into the world and tell people about the redeemer.
This is something that we need to do daily and anywhere.
God has chosen us his messengers to spread the good news of God’s salvation to the world.
He would have chosen angels but opted to choose us as his vessels in a world full of sin.
We need to tell them of a master who is calling, “Come unto me”.
The author of this hymn, William A Ogden was born in 1841 in Ohio.
He learned how to read music at a very young age. At the age of ten he was able to write a melody.
