O God, You are my God
And earnestly I seek You
O how I long for You
In this dry and weary land
I've seen You in the sanctuary
And I beheld Your glory
So I can think of only one thing I can do

I lift my hands
I lift my hands and I will praise You all my days
I lift my voice
I lift my voice to You in this simple song of praise
I lift my eyes
So I will think of You through the watches of the night
Hear the voices ring as Your children sing
In the shadow of Your wings

Hear the voices ring as the children sing
Hear the voices ring as the children sing
Hear the voices ring as the children sing

In the shadow of Your wings
In the shadow of Your wings
