As the deer will pant with raging thirst
My soul e'er thirsts for You
When tears 'most sweep my life away
My heart longs for the true

In all the doubts and questions why
I want to trust my Lord
His faithfulness I crave each day
For His peace to be my all

I didn't understand back then
I thought that all I dreamt I could
My strength untapped I sailed along
Enjoying every good

But, then the cares of life began
And I wondered long and hard
I sought the Lord for answers
In all that seemed so barred

There, as I cried, downcast of soul
The Lord came to my heart
I wanted all His hope to keep
The rest, He could impart

He, listened as I cried in pain
For comfort in the grief
Though little changed in life to see
I felt His arms beneath

He became my refuge and my joy
My strength to rise each day
Each moment He is my every breath
My love, my life always

Soft Whispers from
Derry's Heart Poems 2006

O God, you are my God,
earnestly I seek You;
my soul thirsts for You,
My soul clings to You;
Your right hand upholds me.
Psalm 63:1,8
The Sovereign LORD is my strength;
He makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
He enables me to go on the heights.
Habakkuk 3:19
