Oh Lord! I am but an unsure child at your knees. To go away from you or stay close, I cannot tell. I long to explore–my soul demands it! But who, apart from You, can satisfy the deepest longing of my heart?
Oh Lord, I am but a young woman, defiant in your face. I so often choose what the world offers to rescue me. I depend on and I long for what I can see, feel and taste. Not believing that You, only You, can satisfy the deepest longing of my heart.
Oh Lord! I am but full grown, trying to stand at your side. My own children are learning to trust You for themselves. Please let them see through these mistakes that I’ve made, that You, only You, can satisfy the deepest longing of their hearts.
Oh Lord! I am but an old woman, kneeling at your cross. Touched by the life-long bestowal of your costly grace. You have been present, You’re the very air that I breathe. You, only You, have satisfied the deepest longing of my heart.
I am ready to come home.
