When I Sought Him Freely Brought Him


When I sought Him, freely bro’t Him,
Life surrendered unto Him alone;
Lo! He drew me, hastened to me,
Hands outstretched to clasp my own.

Refrain:
When He held out His hand to me,
When He held out His hand to me,
The print of the nails, the print of the nails,
For tears, I scarcely could see.
When He held out His hand to me,
When He held out His hand to me,
I could not resist, those nail-prints I kissed,
When He held out His hand to me.

Heav’nly treasure beyond measure,
Filled my empty soul with love divine,
As I knew Him hastened to Him,
Clasped His holy hand in mine. [Refrain]

Never lonely, Jesus only
Now in fellowship divine I know;
Not another, friend or brother
Can prevent its priceless flow. [Refrain]
