God is my great desire

God is my great desire,
his face I seek the first;
to him my heart and soul aspire,
for him I thirst.
As one in desert lands,
whose very flesh is flame,
in burning love I lift my hands
and bless his name.

2. God is my true delight,
my richest feast his praise,
through silent watches of the night,
through all my days.
To him my spirit clings,
on him my soul is cast;
beneath the shadow of his wings
he holds me fast.

3. God is my strong defence
in every evil hour;
in him I face with confidence
the tempter’s power.
I trust his mercy sure,
with truth and triumph crowned:
my hope and joy for evermore
in him are found.
