Longing for Jesus

Until You Come

There’s a longing deep within,
That only You can fill.
And a hunger in my heart –
Won’t stop until You come.

And I’m glad – so glad it’s there
Because it leads me to Your door.
I’m thankful for its call,
With You there’s always more.

‘There’s a restless looking up,
With hope Your face I’ll see.
I have this promised dream –
Won’t stop until You come.

And I’m glad – so glad it’s there
Because it leads me to Your feet.
I’m thankful for desire,
In You redemption’s sweet.

There’s a wonder in my soul,
With awe and burning fire;
A never-ending reach,
Won’t stop until You come.

And I’m glad – so glad it’s there
Because it takes me to Your heart.
So thankful for Your touch,
Someday we’ll never part.
