“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.
