As The Deer

  • Lyrics
  • You alone are my strength, my shield
    To You alone may my spirit yield
    You alone are my heart's desire
    And I long to worship Thee

    As the deer panteth for the water
    So my soul longeth after Thee
    You alone are my heart's 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

    I want You more than gold or silver
    Only You can satisfy
    You alone are the real joy giver
    And the apple of my eye
