I am a seeker
A poor sinful creature
There is no weaker than I am
I am a seeker
And you are a teacher
You are a reacher
So reach down

Reach out and lead me
Guide me and keep me
In the shelter of your care each day
'Cause I am a seeker
And you are a keeper
You are the leader
Won't you show me the way

I am a vessel that's empty and useless
I am a bad seed that fell by the way
I am a loser that wants to be a winner
And you are my last hope
Don't turn me away

I am a seeker
A poor sinful creature
There is no weaker than I am
I am a seeker
And you are a teacher
You are a reacher
So reach down

Reach out and lead me
Guide me and keep me
In the shelter of your care each day
'Cause I am a seeker
And you are a keeper
You are the leader
Won't you show me the way

Oh, you are a mountain
From which there flows a fountain
So let its water wash my sins away
'Cause I am a seeker
And you are a keeper
And you are the theacher
Won't you teach me the way

Reach out and lead me
Guide me and keep me
In the shelter of your care each day
'Cause I am a seeker
And you are a keeper
You are a leader
Won't you show me the way
