As The Deer Thirsteth For The Waters


"As the deer panteth after the water brooks,
so panteth my soul after thee, O God.

My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God . . ." (Psalm 42:1-2).

"O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee:
my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee
in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;

To see thy power and thy glory,
so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary" (Psalm 63:1-2).

WORDS OF THE SONG:

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 alone are my strength, my shield,
To You alone may my spirit yield.
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 than any other,
So much more than anything. (Words and Music by Martin J. Nystrom)
