1. I just realized dear Lord, You’ve had a longing
Deep within Your heart from the beginning.
Just to have a companion who would match You,
Who would know You, want You, and would love You.
This is why You became a man just like me
So You could know all my feelings and could reach me
Oh You paid such a price, You left Your glory
To gain a people, a bride to live with You...eternally.
So recover my heart to love You more,
Recover my mind to know You more,
Recover my strength to live You more, O Lord.
I’d be found in You and You in me...living together constantly
Enjoying each other mutually...
Oh this is Your recovery...this meets Your need.
2. Draw me Lord, together with some others
Who would run after You, and not another.
Make us vital in Your life and purpose
Willing to know You, gain You, and to match You!
Above all, dear Lord, Your need is greater
Since You are the “I AM”—the great Creator!
Matchless One, our Lover, and our dear Bridegroom...
Expecting to realize Your dream in all You have won!
