My Soul's Desire

By Steve Israel, Larry Holder and Elton Smith

CCLI Number: 2714750

Steve sent us this melody in need of lyrics. Larry and I were very happy to oblige. Steve and I created the midi together using Band in a Box. Later on this became the title song for a CD Steve created. With his permission we used a painting by Christopher Santer of Pacem Studios as the CD cover. - Elton, May 19, 1999

(Short Introduction)

(Verse 1)
Merciful Lord, Father of love,
You heard my cry, and you came near to me.
In my despair, Lord, You were there,
Bringing me hope; by Your grace I am free!

Lord, You are my soul's desire,
Yes, and Lord, You are all I require.
Lord, unto You I cry, "Abba, Father!"
O Lord, mighty Savior to me!

(Verse 2)
There was no hope, I was so lost.
Living in sin and sorely paying the cost.
You showed me how to walk in Your Way.
Now on the path I find new joy every day.

(Repeat Chorus)
Lord, You are my soul's desire,
Yes, and Lord, You are all I require.
Lord, unto You I cry, "Abba, Father!"
O Lord, mighty Savior to me!

(Verse 3)
You are my Strength, You are my Song;
Saved by Your grace, in Your love I am free.
In days of despair, Lord You are there,
Bringing Your peace and Your comfort to me!

(Repeat Chorus... Ending)
Lord, You are my soul's desire,
Yes, and Lord, You are all I require.
Lord, unto You I cry, "Abba, Father!"
O Lord, mighty Savior to me!
Lord, unto You I cry, "Abba, Father!"
O Lord, mighty Savior to me!
Mighty Savior to me!
