This hymn has a unique tune.


My wandering days grew increasingly empty

As I searched for the way,

Just to fill this gap inside me —

Found my seeking vain.


Though all this dark earth would convince me life's worthwhile,

Inside all my mirth

Was a cry for something real.

Don't you lie to me, world!


For my heart tells me different

When I hear of contentment

Deep within a lack knew better

Why not be honest, world!


A flood of strong doubt as I heard the old story

Of a man they called Lord;

Yet my heart ne'er ceased to wonder,

Is He really Lord?


A search in His Word found my hardened heart softened,

And earth's vanities faded.

In the brightness of His presence

Jesus came into me.


Now we're always together

Growing into God's fullness.

O Lord Jesus, how I love You!

You brought life into me.
