As the Deer (Psalm 42, adapted by Avi Sato)

As the deer pants for the water
So my soul it thirsts for you.
You alone are my heart’s desire
And I long to worship you.

You alone are my strength and shield.
You alone hold my soul.
You alone are my heart’s desire and I long to praise you.

I seek you through my daily thoughts.
Only You can quench my thirst.
Your joe’s past all the god we’ve sought
And the silver we’ve put first.

You alone are my strength and shield.
You alone hold my soul.
You alone are my heart’s desire and I long to praise you.

You’re my friend and I do love you, Lord
Even though you are my God.
I love You as oft’ I speak your name,
Feeling peace here in Your world.

You alone are my strength and shield.
You alone hold my soul.
You alone are my heart’s desire and I long to praise you.
