Looking for lyrics, and a recording or sheet music if possible, of the 1969 campfire evangelism song "I Looked For Love". Part of it goes like this:

But, my friend just called me friend,
and he said, "I'm searching too,"
and the creed only told me what I couldn't do.

I LOOKED FOR LOVE LYRICS

I looked for love in the red rose so small
I looked for love in the green tree so tall
But the red rose has its thorns
And the green tree was a cross
And my searching for love was a total loss

I looked for love in a friendly face so true
I looked for love in the creed I once knew
But my friend just called me friend
And he said I'm searching too
And the creed only told me what I couldn't do.

Then one day I heard a story of love
Like I've never known how God gave His son
To save and wanted me for His own
His own, His very own.

And now I know what it means to belong
Not lost in the crowd swept along by the throng
But to Him Who gave His life
Every longing to fulfill and I know
That He loves me and He always will.

I learned this song when I was in college 45 years ago. I must've learned it correctly because my memory was perfect. Thank you for posting.

Thanks for posting this song I learned in the 70s. Our youthgroup sang it as part of an outreach play which also included "Pass it On". I've been trying to find/remember the lyrics for many months and I did remember except for the first verse which I had completely forgotten.

Thank you so much.
