Where I long for!

There is a place I long for
Covered with white and gold
Shinning beyond the brightness of the sun
Oh, I keep dreaming of this place the mouth cannot express nor can the mind comprehend the grandness of its glory or the magnitude of its beauty
Where the lion is a gentle friend and its roar beckoning with love
That day I will stand in Your presence, dressed in pure white and gold, dancing unconditionally in Your Glory

There is a void I cannot fill
I’ve given it all I could but still empty
I’ve covered it up with all things but still empty
I’ve spoken to it and commanded it to be filled but still empty
I’ve filled it with tears but still empty
I’ve poured laughter in it but still empty

There is a place I long for beyond the skies
Beyond where the waters meet cloud
Beyond where the sky and the sea meet, the early morning horizon
Where the rising sun kisses the cloud and sets itself above, displaying the magnitude of its lustre

Oh, I keep seeing a place that is out of reach from this side of eternity
A place so magnificent and glorious
A place, I see, every time I close my eyes
A place I long to behold, touch, feel and walk
This thirst I cannot quench, even if I finish the waters in the ocean
A desire strong and deep I cannot control
This thirst that flesh cannot feel nor can satisfy
A longing so beyond the touch of the flesh

My heart longs for Your presence
How did I lose it
Why did I ever let go, Lord
Why did I walk away and leave the way I did
How can I come back
I need to come back for my saneness
My heart is broken and, my soul longing
Please take me back into Your arms
Never let me go even when I feel weak and troubled

I don’t know how to come back
I can’t figure out the path
I’ve been so long gone that I cannot remember how to get back home
Home is in Your presence, and Your presence is LIFE

Oh, I keep dreaming of this place the mouth cannot express nor can the mind comprehend the grandness of its glory or the magnitude of its beauty
Where the lion is a gentle friend and its roar beckoning with love
That day I will stand in Your presence, dressed in pure white and gold, dancing unconditionally in Your Glory
