Deeper Desire

"Then said Jonathan unto David, Whatsoever thy soul desireth, I will even do it for theefor he loved him as he loved his own soul" (1 Samuel 20:4,17).  "One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after… to behold the beauty of the LORD" (Psalm 27:4).  "The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it" (Proverbs 10:22).  "God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness… that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved" (Acts 15:8,11).   

The grace of God that He imparts
To love the brethren has sufficed
To knit together kindred hearts
Who worship our Lord Jesus Christ. 

The fountain of this love shall spring
From everlasting wells above
When we are focused on one thing:
The beauty of our Savior's love. 

The love of God is infinite,
Though human love may halt tomorrow. 
With blessings deep and intimate,
Our Lord's desire adds no sorrow. 

O Lord, Your love is like a fire
That burns with an eternal flame! 
Let grace refine our heart's desire
With deeper love to praise Your name.
