For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Sunday Hymn - My Soul Longs for the Lord

My Soul Longs for the Lord

My soul longs for the Lord in a weary land 
Wells are dry and I am empty, only dust in my hands
How I yearn for streams of mercy where my soul can be restored
“Come and drink” Jesus calls me, and you will thirst no more”
Oh the fullness of Christ, Word of God.

Living Word you walked among us, our Emmanuel
And you spoke into the darkness, broke the powers of hell
Grace and mercy flowed from Calvary, to the valley of our need
It is done, “It is finished,” From every sin set free
Oh the victory of Christ, Word of God, Word of life

 How often in the stillness have I heard your voice
 Every whisper, every promise calls my heart to rejoice
 In the quiet of the morning, through the watches of the night
 In the fire of my struggles, there’s courage for the fight
 Oh the power of Christ, Word of God, Word of life

 My soul longs to walk closer with the Lord I serve
 More than riches, more than favour I delight in Your Word
 Turn my gaze from all that’s worthless, set my heart on things above
 May my life tell of your goodness, Your way of truth and love
 Oh the wisdom of Christ, Word of God, Word of life

 My soul longs for the day I will see your face
 Hear Your shout of jubilation, no more tears, death or pain
 Every word at last accomplished, Heaven songs and earth replies
 To our God be the glory let all creation cry
 Praise and honour to Christ, Word of God, Word of life
