"To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice:
and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out."

          Jesus my Savior to Bethlehem came,
          Born in a manger to sorrow and shame;
          Oh, it was wonderful - blessed be His name!
          Seeking for me, for me! Seeking for me!
          Seeking for me! Seeking for me! Seeking for me!
          Oh it was wonderful - blessed be His name!
          Seeking for me, for me!

          Jesus my Savior, on Calvary's tree,
          Paid the great debt and my soul He set free;
          Oh, it was wonderful - how could it be?
          Dying for me, for me! Dying for me!
          Dying for me! Dying for me! Dying for me!
          Oh, it was wonderful - how could it be?
          Dying for me, for me!

          Jesus my Savior, the same as of old,
          While I was wand'ring a far from the fold,
          Gently and long did He plead with my soul,
          Calling for me, for me! Calling for me!
          Calling for me! Calling for me! Calling for me!
          Gently and long did He plead with my soul,
          Calling for me, for me!

          Jesus my Savior shall come from on high -
          Sweet is the promise as weary years fly;
          Oh, I shall see Him descending the sky,
          Coming for me, for me, Coming for me!
          Coming for me! Coming for me! Coming for me!
          Oh, I shall see Him descending the sky,
          Coming for me, for me!
