PROMPT: Such a Thirst

Missed this skirmish this morning and thought I had to right some kind of sensual song with the prompt - that is not where the muse took me - quite the contrary this evening

Lyrics: 

such a thirst

V1
I have such a thirst
a thirst for You
Your teachings of
peace and truth
I long to follow
the path You have laid
to follow your lead
in all I do...

PC
I long to follow...
follow you

C
quench my thirst with Your love
feed my hunger with wonder
fuel my heart
fill my soul
hold me forever
in Your hands

V2
I have such a thirst
a thirst for You
Your passion for
forgiveness too
I strive to worship
and to praise Your name
worship and praise in
all that I do...

PC
I long to worship...
worship You

C
quench my thirst
with Your love
feed my hunger
with wonder
fuel my heart
fill my soul
hold me forever
in Your hands

B
I drink from Your cup
I eat from Your bread
I pray to You with my songs
ever grateful for Your gifts
of life and love

C
quench my thirst
with Your love
feed my hunger
with wonder
fuel my heart
fill my soul
hold me forever
in Your hands

Very direct lyric. It's like a mantra that could be repeated over and over. It's also general enough that it could apply to various situations. Very well done.

This one surely is a keeper, I can tell the words are heartfelt and expressing thirst in a spiritual way was a perfect way to go. Beautiful lyric this one.

Beautifully spiritual and sincere. You so often amaze me!

I love the sincerity of this, the simplicity. We make 'god' into all these images and standards and expectations, and He/She is is like, "Whoa folks, just chill and embrace me." That's what you've captured here. <3
