Lyrics

The lyrics are copyright so cannot be reproduced here. But they are currently available on the composer's Facebook page. A rough outline is:
Refrain:
As a deer craves running water,
I thirst for you, my God;
I thirst for God,
the living God,
When will I see your face?

1 Send your light and truth ...

2 I will approach the altar of God ...

3 Why are you sad, my heart ....

See more ...


KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
- As a deer craves running water, I thirst for you, my God; I thirst for God, the living God, When will I see your face? 1 Send your light and truth. They will escort me to the holy mountain where you make your home. 2 I will approach the altar of God, God, my highest joy, and praise you with the harp, God, my God. 3 Why are you sad, my heart? Why do you grieve? Wait for the Lord. I will yet praise God my saviour.
