as the deer

Deer

As The Deer

As the deer pants for the water, so my soul longs after You.
You alone are my heart’s desire and I long to worship You.

[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.

I want You more than gold and silver, only You can satisfy.
You alone are the real joy Giver and the apple of my eye.
[Chorus]

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]
