A plastic flower does not yearn
for water and the sun,
and if our spirit knows God’s touch
it’s life has just begun –
a life that yearns to know God more,
a life that yearns for heaven’s shore.
A heart that yearns that others come
experience joy so true,
and loves to share with those who have
enjoyed salvation too,
knows family relationship
with those who taste God’s fellowship.
The thing most wonderful of all
is that God yearns for me
that I drink from what he provides
– my love, he loves to see.
‘Oh, help me not forget and slide
away from you, my wise, good Guide!’
