Petra – The Longing lyrics

Words by Joel Hanson

In each heart there is a longing
In each soul a desperate cry
To know if life has some true meaning
Or if we simply live and die
Earthly pleasures and possessions
Leave the sinking spirit dry
In each heart there is a longing
Only Jesus satisfies

In each life there comes the question
Is there more than meets the eye
And what will we see of the eternal
When the well of days runs dry?
So we search with so few finding
The difference between truth and lies
While in each heart there is a longing
Only Jesus satisfies

Mysetery on a hillside
The purest love expressed
Guilty lips cry forgive me
In that moment I found rest

So we search with so few finding
The difference between truth and lies
While in each heart there is a longing
Only Jesus satisfies
