I Sought Thee, Adonai

    “I Sought Thee, Adonai,” Ensign, Oct. 1979, 7

    I Sought Thee, Adonai

    I sought thee, Adonai, and I found thee.

    I sought thee among the firs and the alders,

    among the stars of clear skies.

    I found thee not there.

    I sought thee on hilltops,

    I sought thee in clear streams,

    in the gold and red of trout,

    and I found thee not there.

    But in the clouded and starless night

    when I sought thee with tears,

    when I knelt in ashes,

    I found thee; thy finger touched me.

    And now, among the firs and the alders,

    among stars and on hilltops,

    in clear streams,

    and in the gold and red of trout,

    I find thee, Adonai,

    I find thee.
