Thread Name: ADD/Origins: Seek and Ye Shall Find
Subject: ADD: Seek and You Shall Find
Here's the version from Rise Up Singing It's identified as traditional, with verses by Sam Hinton. I'd swear the Limeliters sang it with the love coming "tricklin" down, but I can't find a recording. I see that the Kingston Trio "Nick-Bob-John album has a song called "Love Comes a Trickling Down" by Jonathan Harris, whoever he was.

SEEK AND YOU SHALL FIND
(trad/Hinton)

Seek and you shall find
Knock and the door shall be opened
Ask, and you shall be answered
When the love comes tumblin' down


O you look in the Bible and what do you see?
When the love comes tumblin' down
That you shall know the truth and it will make you free
When the love comes tumblin' down

You've got to love your neighbor, like the Lord has done...
You've got to walk three miles if he asks for one...

If you want to go to heaven where the Saints all go...
You've got to try to make a heaven while you're here below...
