holy design
this place in time
that I might seek and find my God
my God

Lord I want to yearn for You
I want to burn with passion
over You and only You
Lord I want to yearn

Your joy is mine
yet why am I fine
with all my singing and bringing grain
in light of Him

oh You give life and breath
through Him You give all things
in Him we live and move
that's why I sing

    General CommentI wrote a short sermon on this song:
    I love the lyrics to this song. I think it describes a place we all often find ourselves at, but we rarely realize we are there, and even fewer songs are written about to describe it, or if we do know that is where we are, we don’t know how to describe it. It is that stage between not caring about God, and wanting God, it is the wanting to yearn stage. We tend to go through 3 major stages in our walk: 1) we want nothing to do with God. 3) We want God, we yearn for him. But 2 is one we don’t realize often, 2 is wanting to yearn for God, or wanting to want him. So many times we are here, and we just don’t know where we are. We want to want God, but we just don’t quite want him yet. “Lord I want to yearn for You, I want to burn with passion over you and only you”.
