Only All My Heart’s Desire

Though for years I’ve known

and loved your name,

I live so oft on an earthly plane.

I’ve spent much time in vain pursuit

Of things not bearing lasting fruit.

Direct my feet to worthy paths,

To care more for the things that last. Leading souls to life that’s higher,

Oh make your will my heart’s desire.

My heart’s desire, to love you more,

To live the life you made me for.

Build in my soul a holy fire

Be only, all my heart’s desire.

I know your Word produces faith,

I crave its truth and seek your face.

Teach me always to abide

In your power that fills with life.

In my own strength, there’s only death,

But you have offered life and breath.

To seek you may I never tire,

Jesus, be my heart’s desire.

My heart’s desire, to love you more,

To live the life you made me for.

Fill my soul with holy fire,

Be only, all my heart’s desire.
