As the deer pants for water,
so pants my soul for…
My soul pants. Tired, exhausted, emotional
So pants my soul; it pants for restoration.
It pants for the not yet to become the already;
for both feet to be in eternity
It pants for freedom from flesh; for freedom from the adversary to freedom
It pants for truth; inwardly and outward.
It so pants for justice; it pants for life
It pants for evil; It pants for treachery and adultery; It pants for rebellion and wickedness
It pants for salvation and incarceration; for redemption and chains;
Forgive it Father for it knows not what it pants for, and yet still it pants.
Against Your will, Your green pastures and still water, Your streams and bread of life
Out of breath, it pants; thirsty and tired, it pants.
Hope waning, vision blurred, hearing fading, belief leaving;
It pants for beauty and wonder; for excitement and exhilaration;
Where is your God? God is here; Hope in God
Drink of Him, while He may yet be found
It pants for strength to wait upon the Lord; It pants for renewal
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
O my soul, how it pants
