As the Deer

As the deer panteth for the water
So my soul longeth after thee
You alone are my hearts desire
And I long to worship thee

You're my friend and You are my brother,
Even though you are a king.
I love you more thank any other,
So much more than anything.

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
You alone are my strength my shield
To You alone may my spirit yield
You alone are my hearts desire
And I long to worship You

We sang this song in church this morning, and the chorus always gets to me.
You alone are my strength and my shield. My strength and protection are not found in myself, or in anyone here on earth.

To You alone may my spirit yield. That's the line that makes me want to cry. May I never yield my spirit to anyone or anything on earth, but to God alone.

You alone are my hearts desire, and I long to worship You. So often I think I want the things of this world. But those things do not satisfy me, this world is not enough. What I really desire is God, what I really long for is to worship Him.
