Seek ye first, not earthly pleasure

1
Seek ye first, not earthly pleasure,
Fading joy and failing treasure,
But the love that knows no measure
  Seek ye first.
2
Seek ye first, not earth’s aspirings,
Ceaseless longings, vain desirings,
But your precious soul’s requirings
  Seek ye first.
3
Seek ye first God’s peace and blessing;
Ye have all if this possessing;
Come, your need and sin confessing,
  Seek Him first.
4
Seek Him first, then when forgiven,
Pardoned, with the peace of heaven,
Let your life to Him be given:
  Seek this first.
5
Seek this first—Be pure and holy;
Like the Master, meek and lowly;
Yielded to His service wholly:
  Seek this first.
6
Seek the coming of His kingdom;
Seek the souls around to win them,
Seek to Jesus Christ to bring them:
  Seek this first.
7
Seek this first, His promise trying;
It is sure, all need supplying.
Heavenly things, on Him relying,
  Seek ye first.
