“As the deer pants for the water brooks, so my soul pants for You, O God.” – Psalm 42:1

As the Deer

Verse 1:
As the deer panteth for the water,
So my soul longeth after Thee.
You alone are my heart’s desire,
And I long to worship Thee.

Chorus:
You alone are my strength, my shield;
To You alone may my spirit yield.
You alone are my heart’s desire,
And I long to worship Thee.

Verse 2:
You’re my friend and You are my brother,
Even though You are a King.
I love You more than any other,
So much more than anything.

Chorus

Verse 3:
I want You more than gold or silver,
Only You can satisfy.
You alone are the real joy giver,
And the apple of my eye.

Chorus
