Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for.
Keep on seeking, and you will find.
Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you
(Matthew 7:7; NLT).

1. If we seek the Lord within,
He promises we’ll find.

2. If we knock upon his door
It opens: he is kind.

3. If we ask the Father’s help,
He hears us when we plead.

4. If we love the Lord our God
He gives us all we need.
