Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: I have a longing within my heart To choose, like Mary, “the better part.” I need God’s love and His word of grace; I have a longing for His embrace; His embrace.
Verse 2: Lost in a barren and thirsty land, I reach in faith for His outstretched hand. God never leaves me, He answers prayer For quiet rest in His righteous care; His righteous care
Verse 3: My soul’s desire is to hear His call, To see my Savior who gave His all; That day my longing, God will replace With endless comfort in His embrace; His embrace.
