In Pursuit Of Worship - Poem by Deidre Dixon

As the deer pants after the water brook
So does my soul long after you, Lord.
In pursuit of being in your very presence
And to live this life you have given me by your holy word

My heart’s desire is to be one after your own heart
As I dwell in this life anew.
Knowing that every part of my life, and the style in which I live it
Is all a part of worshipping you.

I hide your Word deep in the wells of my heart
So that I will not sin against thee.
But, somehow this desperately wicked part of my being
Never ceases to deceive me.

Oh Lord, my Lord hear my humble cry
As I seek your everlasting mercy.
I know I don’t deserve it, but I beseech you, my precious Father
Please don’t take your spirit from me.

I will sing, I will shout, I will study, I will pray
Whatever it takes is what I will do
But, I declare that I will never give up as long as I shall live
In pursuit of worshipping you.
