This is the view I had each morning at the Life Action camp as I met with a small handful of guys on the dock to pray. We enjoyed deep seekings after God’s face, as well as deep heartcries for the lost and for our own souls. Not for any other reason than Christ fulfilling His promise that where two or more gather, He would be with them.
The following is a deviation from my typical wording style, but I hope the meaning still comes across.
Lord I tasted of Your blessings,
And the Mercies that You show,
Every breath another reason,
Your paternal care to know
My body knows not hunger,
But longs for lasting food,
My heart, oh Lord, is restless,
Till it finds its all in You.
I’ve heard the world’s loud singing
I’ve drawn distractions near
Ten thousand fleshly voices
Ever falling on my ears
But Your graciousness compells me
To lay aside the noise,
Lord, I would my heart was pounding,
To hear my Lover’s voice.
Lord I’ve drunken myself empty
Of earth’s distasteful wines
I’ve hard-sought earthly milk
And ended feeding swine
Yet Your faithfulness e’er offers
The sweetest without price
Like fleeing deer I’m panting,
And Your streams alone suffice.
Lord, my soul’s supreme Belovéd,
Your Son, no sinning knew
His heart ne’er once went straying,
For He was satisfied in You
Now His Spirit is within us,
So on Your name I call,
Lord, so show to us Your fulness
That we seek in You our all.
