As Runs the thirsting Deer

As runs the thirsting deer to find
Where cooling waters flow,
So rush the wishes of my heart to come before you Lord!
Lord, come, make our hearts your dwelling.
For you we are longing. Come, O Lord

The Lord, the God of heaven, is the thirsting of my heart.
When will this lowly servant see your face, O mighty Lord!
Lord, come, make our hearts your dwelling.
For you we are longing. Come, O Lord

With songs in praise of you upon my lips
And in my heart, I joyfully approach
The banquet table of the Lord!
Lord, come, make our hearts your dwelling.
For you we are longing. Come, O Lord

The splendor of the altar beckons for us to approach
We all have been invited to the table of the Lord!
Lord, come, make our hearts your dwelling.
For you we are longing. Come, O Lord

We eat this bread in holy love and peace-fill unity
This bread made for us by the hands of Jesus Christ our Lord!
Lord, come, make our hearts your dwelling.
For you we are longing. Come, O Lord

We drink there of the chalice which salvation overflows
Till then we will be singing songs in praise of Christ our Lord!
Lord, come, make our hearts your dwelling.
For you we are longing. Come, O Lord

We will find there bread to give us live, there wine to fire our love.
It is the Blood of God's own Lamb, the Body of our Lord!
Lord, come, make our hearts your dwelling.
For you we are longing. Come, O Lord

May all our lives be sanctified by living unity
With Body, Blood, with soul and God-head of our saving Lord!
Lord, come, make our hearts your dwelling.
For you we are longing. Come, O Lord

Well, Lord, we are your creatures, take us, do your will in us;
May we be only yours both now and always, mighty Lord!
Lord, come, make our hearts your dwelling.
For you we are longing. Come, O Lord
