As the Deer by Chris Shanks

This morning we want to share ‘As The Deer‘ (Martin Nystrom arr. James Wright), played here by our principal euphonium player and YP band leader Chris Shanks.
 
As the deer pants for the water,
So my soul longs after You.
You alone are my heart’s desire,
And I long to worship You.
 
You alone are my strength, my shield;
To You alone may my spirit yield.
You alone are my heart’s desire,
And I long to worship You.
 
I want You more than gold or silver,
Only You can satisfy.
You alone are the real joy giver,
And the apple of my eye.
 
You alone are my strength, my shield;
To You alone may my spirit yield.
You alone are my heart’s desire,
And I long to worship You.
 
You’re my friend and You are my brother
Even though You are a King.
I love You more than any other,
So much more than anything.
 
You alone are my strength, my shield;
To You alone may my spirit yield.
You alone are my heart’s desire,
And I long to worship You.
