Words and Music by Denis Stanley Sorenson

Everyone, at some time or other, seeks the companionship and/or leadership of one who can be trusted to lead in the right ways and to the right places. For some it may be a prophet – for others, a man good enough to marry. Sherisse had the good fortune to find Lyle Coombs – and married him. On this song, she has the solo.

Lyrics

I seek a man with a heavenly mind,
One who can vision before and behind
Talk to his maker and talk to his friend;
See a beginning and measure the end.

I seek compassion and loving and care,
I seek a gentle man, one who will share
The ache of his feelings, the rise of his dawn,
The knowing and seeing that carry him on.

This is my errand, my work, and my goal.
Find such a being and follow him whole,
Take his example and tread where he's trod,
Follow him homeward, and meet him with God.

I look for character, studied and fine,
Honed to a sharpness, refined and divine
Who speaks up for God and then light up the way.
I seek a prophet (the prophet) who speaks for today.

This is my errand, my work, and my goal.
Find such a being and follow him whole.
Take his example and tread where he's trod.
Follow him homeward, and meet him with God.
