View Lyrics
O Lord my God, most earnestly
my heart will seek Your face,
within Your holy house again
to see Your glorious grace.
Apart from You, I long and thirst,
and none can satisfy;
I wander in a desert land
where all the streams are dry.

The tender mercies of my God
are more than life to me;
so I will bless You while I live,
to You my prayer shall be.
In You my soul is satisfied,
my darkness turns to light,
and joyful meditations fill
the watches of the night.

My Savior, underneath Your wings
my soul delights to dwell;
and closer to Your side I'll stay,
for with You, all is well.
My soul shall conquer every foe,
upheld by Your own hand;
Your people shall rejoice in God,
Your saints in glory stand.
