.Seek Ye First

 

Do I seek you first as I open my eyes?

Do I seek you first when I first arise?

Do I seek you first as the sun streams in?

Do I seek you first as each day begins?

 

Do I seek you first as my feet hit the floor?

Do I seek you first as I walk out my door?

Do I seek you first sitting at the traffic light?

Do I seek you first as I turn left or right?

 

Do I seek you first standing in a check out line?

Do I seek you first when the checker is unkind?

Do I seek you first in all things great and small?

Do I seek you first? Do I give you my all?

 

Do I seek you first as the day turns to night?

Do I seek you first as the moon gives her light?

Do I seek you first the last thing each day?

Do I seek you first before I sleep the night away?

 

You said I should seek you early and seek you late.

You said I should seek you in all things small and great.

You said I should seek you when things go my way.

You said I should seek you when I've seen a better day.

 

You said I should put you first in all that I do.

You said I should give all glory unto you.

You said if I'd ask, you'd direct my steps each day.

You said if I'd ask, you'd show me the way:

 

To all things I could ever need here,

To all desires my heart holds dear.

To all things lovely, beautiful, and kind,

To all things you created with me in mind.

 

Thank you Jesus for putting me first.

Thank you Jesus for taking on my curse.

Thank you Jesus for dying for me.

Thank you Jesus from sin setting me free.

 

Let me always remember what place you should hold,

In my heart, in my mind, in my life, in my soul.

Let me remember you stand strong when I am weak.

You put me first, now you first, I pray always to seek.
