Your Love Is Better Than Life

(Based on Psalm 63)

By Brother Ephraim

Brother Ephriam sent this song... midi and all... to me. It's happy and catchy. He works as a professional music engraver. Please contact Brother Ephraim by email if you would like a music score. - Elton, June 19, 2000


O God, You are my God,
Your presence, Lord, do I seek,
I see Your pow'r in the sanctuary.
My soul thirsteth for You,
My flesh longeth for You,
In a weary land, Lord, to You I cling.

Thru the watches of the night,
I remember You on my bed;
I sing to You in the shadow of Your wings.
Because You are my help,
I lift my hands in Your Name,
And I sing to You in the shadow of Your wings.

Because Your love is better than life
My lips will praise You,
I will bless You, Lord, as long as I live.
Your lovingkindness is better than life,
My lips will praise You,
I will bless You, Lord, as long as I live!

(Raise key and repeat entire verse)
