Refreshing Radiance

Oh God, You’re my God,

I want more of You;

with all that I am,

in all that I do.

When parched in dry land,

for You, I do thirst.

Only Your water,

refreshes on Earth.

Here I am standing,

before You with praise.

All of my worship,

for all of my days.

In Your love there’s life,

strength, hope and power;

with each breath I take,

faithful Strong Tower.

I lift up my hands,

surrendered to You;

Your love, far greater,

nothing else will do.

Satisfaction found,

in Your Name alone.

You watch through the night,

make my heart Your home.

Because You’re my help,

I sing in Your wings,

You gently hold me,

as I tightly cling.

(Responding to Psalm 63:1-8)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You alone satisfy all that we are longing for.  Forgive us for seeking anything other than You.  Thank You that You are all that we need.  When we are weary, You are our strength.  When we are parched, You saturate us with Your love.  Thank You that we have the privilege to come freely before You in worship.  Thank You that as we come to praise You, we are blessed by Your overwhelming presence and Your peace.  All praise to You, Jesus.  May we move in loving kindness today, and may many come to know You through the evidence of You in our lives.  Amen.
