One thing I desire
One thing I seek
To gaze upon Your beauty
And Your Majesty

God of my salvation
Lifter of my head
Teach me how to live oh Lord
And Your righteousness

So I pray to You
So I pray to You

Lord, Your name
Is higher than the heavens
Lord, Your name
Is higher than all created things

Higher than hope
Higher than dreams
The name of the Lord

In the days of trouble
You cover me
In the secret place of refuge
Lord, I will sing

So I pray to You, I pray
So I pray to You

Lord, Your name
Is higher than the heavens
Lord, Your name
Is higher than all created things

Higher than hope
Higher than dreams
The name of the Lord

I will seek Your face
Call upon Your name, Jesus
All I want is You, Jesus, Jesus

I will seek Your face
Call upon Your name, Jesus
And all I want is You, Jesus, Jesus

I will seek Your face
Call upon Your name, Jesus
All I want is You, Jesus

Lord, Your name
Is higher than the heavens
Lord, Your name
Is higher than all created things

Higher than hope
Higher than dreams

Lord, Your name
Is higher than the heavens
Lord, Your name
Is higher than all created things

Higher than hope
Higher than dreams
The name of the Lord

    Praising, crying, calling, desiring and worshiping god are what this song tells about. Jesus is higher than the heavens and his name is higher than all created things! He is marvelous, powerful, merciful, mighty, loving and everything! Praise god!!!
