From the mountains to the valley

From the mountains to the valley
Your river runs deep and wide,
Surrounds me, sustains me
Oh how I need you
To you, I lift up my soul

Like a tree planted beside still waters
You refresh, nourish this soul
The giver of life, the gardener and the vine
Oh how I need you
To you, I lift up my soul

From the mountains to the valley
Your river runs deep and wide
Thirsty for more, thirsty for you
Oh how I need you
To you, I lift up my soul

From the seasons of winter into spring
Your river gives life, refreshes my soul
Hungry for more, hungry for you
Oh how I need you
To you, I lift up my soul.

From the mountains to the valley
Your river runs deep and wide
Bringing new life, healing deep wounds
Oh how I need you
To you, I lift up my soul

One thing I ask, this is what I seek
To dwell in this house
And gaze upon your beauty
All the days of my life
One thing I ask, this is what I seek
To dwell in this house
Seeking you, in your temple
All the days of my life

Come Holy Spirit come
Do what only you can do
In our city, in our nation
Restore hope
Restore love
Restore joy
Restore peace
Bring new life

Come Holy Spirit come
Do what only you can do
In our city, in our nation
Bring light into the darkness
Bring life into bareness
Bring hope to hopelessness
Bring peace into chaos

Come Holy Spirit come
It’s your presence
That we seek
Awaken us.

[Inspired by Psalms 1, 25, 27 & 84]
