 Music and Words by Anne Quigley
There is a longing

There is a longing in our hearts, o Lord for you to reveal yourself to us

There is a longing in our hearts for love we only find in you, our God
 

There is a longing in our hearts, o Lord for you to reveal yourself to us
There is a longing in our hearts for love we only find in you, our God

 

For justice, for freedom, for mercy, hear our prayer
In sorrow, in grief, be near, hear our prayer, o God

 

There is a longing in our hearts, o Lord for you to reveal yourself to us
There is a longing in our hearts for love we only find in you, our God

 

For wisdom, for courage, for comfort, hear our prayer
In weakness, in fear, be near, hear our prayer, o God

 

There is a longing in our hearts, o Lord for you to reveal yourself to us
There is a longing in our hearts for love we only find in you, our God

 

Lord, save us, take pity, light in our darkness
We call you (we call you) we wait (we wait)
Be near, hear our prayer, o God

 

There is a longing in our hearts, o Lord for you to reveal yourself to us
There is a longing in our hearts for love we only find in you, our God
