Words and music by Bob Hartman
Based on Genesis 15:2, Matthew 5:6, Hebrews 12:29, Psalms 40:2

This thirsting within my soul
Won't cease til I've been made whole
To know you, to walk with you
To please you in all I do
You uphold the righteous and your faithfulness shall endure

(Chorus)
Adonai, Master of the earth and sky
You alone are worthy, Adonai
Adonai, let creation testify
Let your majesty be magnified in me
Adonai, you are an endless mystery

Unchanging consuming fire
Lift me up from mud and mire
Set my feet upon your rock, let me dwell in your righteousness

When the storms surround me, speak the word and they will be still
And this thirst and hunger is a longing only you can fill
