My Soul Longs for the Lord (#76)    
(solo recording, 4:12)

My soul longs for the Lord
In a weary land
Wells are dry, and I am empty
Only dust in my hands

How I yearn for streams of mercy
Where my soul can be restored
"Come and drink", Jesus calls me,
"And you will thirst no more"

Oh, the fullness of Christ
Word of God, Word of Life

Living Word, You walked among us
Our Emmanuel
And You spoke into the darkness
Broke the powers of hell

Grace and mercy flowed from Calv'ry
To the valley of our need
It is done, "It is finished!"
From every sin set free

Oh, the victory of Christ
Word of God, Word of Life

How often in the stillness
Have I heard Your voice
Every whisper every promise
Calls my heart to rejoice

In the quiet of the morning
Through the watches of the night
In the fire of my struggles
There's courage for the fight

Oh, the power of Christ
Word of God, Word of Life

My soul longs to walk closer
With the Lord I serve
More than riches, more than favor
I delight in Your Word

Turn my gaze from all that's worthless
Set my heart on things above
May my life tell Your goodness
Your way of truth and love

Oh, the wisdom of Christ
Word of God, Word of Life

My soul longs for the day
I will see Your face
Hear Your shout of jubilation
"No more tears, death or pain!"

Every word at last accomplished
Heaven sings and earth replies
"To our God be the glory!"
Let all creation cry

Praise and honor to Christ
Word of God, Word of Life

Praise and honor to Christ
Word of God, Word of Life
