Worship Sunday: One Thirst

By Matt Ralph —  July 29, 2012 — Leave a comment

This song from Bethel Church in California and written by Mt. Holly native Jeremy Riddle has really been blessing me in worship lately. Corporate worship can unfortunately at times be overly focused on how “we” or “I” respond to God, how “we” or “I” love God and not enough about who God is and what He’s done for us.

What I love about this song is how the focus is on the glory and wonder of God and implores Him to fill whatever place we are in, to teach us and reveal His ways, to anoint us for the greater things.

Lyrics after the jump. Have a worship song you’d like to write about and share here? Email events@sjchristianevents.com.

You say to us seek Your face
Our hearts reply, Your face we seek
And come teach us Lord, reveal Your ways
Anoint us for the greater things

We have gathered with one thirst and hunger
We’re here to drink of glory and wonder,
Here to cry out
Come and fill this place
Come and fill this place

And our single wish, our sole desire
To gaze upon Your beauty God
We will not rest, nor will we cease
Till with our eyes, Your face we see

We have gathered with one thirst and hunger
We’re here to drink of glory and wonder,
Here to cry out
Come and fill this place, this place
Come and fill this place, this place
(repeats)

We wait for You to come and show Your glory here today.
We wait for You to come and show Your glory here today.
We wait for You to come and show Your glory here today.
We wait for You to come and show Your glory here today.
We wait for You, God we wait for You!
We wait for You, God we wait for You!

Alleluia come, Alleluia come, Alleluia come, Alleluia come!
(repeats)

We wait for You to come and show Your glory here today!
(repeats)
