548. As the Deer

1 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.

Refrain:
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.

2 You're my friend and You are my brother,
Even though You are a King.
I love You more than any other,
So much more than anything. [Refrain]

3 I want You more than gold or silver,
Only You can satisfy.
You alone are the real joy giver,
And the apple of my eye. [Refrain]
