The Bringer of Joy
by Tom Kelly
As a doe yearns for water, Lord, my soul yearns for you.
As a weary land waits for rain, so I will wait for you.
And I will gladly sing of your love, and proclaim your mighty deed,
for you have saved me from distress.
As a mighty cedar reaches high, so I will reach for you.
Holy One, mighty God, Word made flesh, Wonder Counselor,
You're the Alpha and the Omega, the Great Bright Morning Star.
