166 - As the deer
 
(De verzen worden voorafgegaan door een kort voorspel.)
 
1 As the deer panteth for the water,
So my soul longs after You.
You alone are my hearts desire,
And I long to worship You.
 
Refrein You alone are my strength, my shield;
To You alone may my spirit yield.
You alone are my hearts desire,
and I long to worship You.
 
2 You're my Friend and You're my Brother,
Even though You are a King.
I love You more than any other
So much more than anything.
 
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.
