​I Thirst For You

This song is by Randy Stonehill and appears…

I was the boy with the high-water pants
Too shy to go to the dance
Till I learned that I could sing and play guitar
And I finally felt like someone
Though my questions still remained
But I've come to find my answers
In the echo of Your name

And Lord I thirst for You
Like a man in the desert needs water to drink
And I cling to You, like a drowning sailor
Trying not to sink
And I want to trust in your hand of love
More than what I feel or think
I really do - I thirst for You

Well she walked that stage one night
Oh, and I could feel the lightning strike
And it happened just the way I'd always dreamed
We got married on a winter's day
And we discovered along the way
That to stay in love is harder than it seemed
But through all the times we've laughed or cried
Or let each other down
Jesus is the heartbeat
Of the true love we have found

And Lord I thirst for You
Like a man in the desert needs water to drink
And I cling to You, like a drowning sailor
Trying not to sink
And I want to trust in your hand of love
More than what I feel or think
I really do - I thirst for You

And when our baby girl arrived
Oh, the air seemed electrified
And I've understood what being happy means
And I've always prayed from that first day
That she will understand
That the gift of life is not complete
Until she takes Your hand

And Lord I thirst for You
Like a man in the desert needs water to drink
And I cling to You, like a drowning sailor
Trying not to sink
And I want to trust in your hand of love
More than what I feel or think
I really do - I thirst for You
