Oh Lord, Elohim, I desire something greater
Only to know you more.
I will search for you forever, to the ends of the earth
I cannot compare to the beauty of your ways
In Your Heart I find my home, in your Arms my hiding place
Give me a desire for your Heart
Grow my passion for the Lover of my soul into an unquenchable flame.
You alone are my Jehovah Jirah.
You did it: you changed wild lament into whirling dance;
You ripped off my black mourning band and decked me with wildflowers.
I'm about to burst with song; I can't keep quiet about you.
Elohim, my Abba, I can't thank you enough.
Help me to rely only on You. The one who holds my heart and my life.
Let me not be taken up in Earthly things, to give myself to idols.
Focus my eyes on You. The Audience of One.
The only One who's opinion really matters.
Help me to follow Your call on my life.
To heal the brokenhearted, to bind up their wounds
To announce in a loud voice freedom to the captives
To comfort those who mourn.
Never to focus on myself.
Make my life a mirror, reflecting only Your Face.
Convict my heart, Make and mold me to be like Yehushua.
Help me to show forth Love, Forgiveness, Grace, Hope
These are the things that truly matter.
