Lord, may I be that deer,
that pants after You
may Your living waters
in my life, run though.
May I thirst after You,
more and more each day
may I find Your mercies
as I go along my way.
May I long to seek You,
to know Your perfect will
may You be the strength
keeping me calm and still.
May I sip from the brook,
flowing with eternal grace
may it be Your undying love
my heart, cries to embrace.
Lord, may my life reflect,
my desire to be near
may my soul pant . . .
after You, like that deer!
King James Version
"As the hart panteth after the water brooks,
so panteth my soul after thee, O God.
My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God:
when shall I come and appear before God?"

TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
