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 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
I don't know what it is about these lyrics, but they get to me. At all times in my journey I have found this song to be full of so much truth, whether my faith is at a high point or even a low point. I don't have a great voice, but sometimes I sing to the boys. And this is one of those songs whose lyrics are so deeply printed on my spirit that I can sing them without worrying about the words or how I sound, and I can be present in the moment.
