The Seeker

Chorus: 
[A] I am a Seeker, a Poor, Sinful Creature 
There is no [D] Weaker than I [A] am 
I am a Seeker, You are a Teacher 
You are a [D] Reacher, So reach [E] Down. 


Won't You [A] reach out and lead me
[D] Guide me and [A] Keep Me 
In the shelter of Your care each Day 
'Cause I am a Seeker, You are a Keeper 
You [D] are the [A] Leader
Won't You [E] show me the [A] Way.


[A] I am a Vessel, that's Empty and Useless
I [D] am a [A] bad Seed that [D] fell by the [A] Way 
I am a Loser that wants to be a Winner 
You [D] are my [A] last Hope
Don't [E] turn me [A] Away.


Chorus: 
[A] I am a Seeker, a Poor, Sinful Creature 
There is no [D] Weaker than I [A] am 
I am a Seeker, You are a Teacher 
You are a [D] Reacher, So reach [E] Down. 


Won't You [A] reach out and lead Me 
[D] Guide me and [A] Keep me, Lord 
In the Shelter of Your care each Day 
'Cause I am a Seeker, You are a Keeper 
You [D] are the [A] Leader
Won't You [E] show me the [A] Way.


Oh, I know You are a Mountain 
From [D] which there flows a [A] Fountain 
So let its Water wash my Sins Away 
'For I am a Seeker, You are a Keeper 
You [D] are the [A] Leader
Won't You [E] show me the [D] Wa-ay-y. [A]
