As the deer



Lyrics Martin Nystrom


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.
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.

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.
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.

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.
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.

As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.
My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?
My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me,
Where is thy God? PSALMS 42:1-3



For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand,
saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.
ISAIA 41:13

This song "As the deer" is the most favorite worship song of mine.Simpleness of the melody and genuineness of the lyrics fascinates me so much and I can't stop myself singing and humming this song several times a day like an attack or something.

last sunday when I was playing with kids and the youngs after we finished our service in tatami room,I asked them "Is there someone knows the English version lyrics of this song?"

without any deep thought.long time I wanted to know and I was imagining that how nice it will be if I could sing this song in English freely.

one day later our sweet brother Nao kun found out the video of this song on Youtube and uploaded on the Facebook.I shouted out by joy finally I could know it and the kindness of Nao showed to me!He remembered what I said and he did it for me!(actually it must not be only for me)

I'll show my gratitude toward him and the Lord gave countless blessings to my life.

Thank you so much.I love you!
