My longings lie before you
As also do my many needs
Often lord I find myself praying
For you to please come to me

Answer the prayers that I am praying
For only you can see deep within
You alone know my hearts intentions
If they are pure or just full of sin

I languish in my own sadness
While my body aches with searing pain
I thirst after your companionship
Like a desert flower for a drop of rain

So please return this day to me
Embrace each word that from my lips fall
Know that my heart patiently waits for you
Lord to answer my silent call
