We Long To See You

We starve for you God
for no food fills us as you do
We thirst for you God
for no drink sustains us as you do
We long to see you God
for you are our light, our life

Why then God do you turn your face from us?
Starving, we turn to less fulfilling foods
Thirsting, we drink and drink, never satisfied
Longing, we let our fleshly desires take over

God we need to see your face
even if your look scolds us for our sins

We need to hear a word from your mouth
even if your words scathe us for our unfaithfulness

We need to be in your presence
even if it completely overwhelms us

We need you God, so do not keep your face turned away

And we know that you won’t
Because we have read the stories
Stories of you
filling the hungry
sustaining the thirsty
showing your face at just the right time

We long to see you God
and we wait
impatiently
expectantly
hopefully
