To Languish

I want to have a true desire for You
Nothing that is out of fear
Or to fill the status quo

I know my life means nothing without You
And I still constantly fill it with other things
Forgetting yet yearning for the joy You bring

I search and I search and I search
For sweet nothings that aren’t to be found
I’m meant to lay all of this down

I try to fill the emptiness and calm my own fears
Seeking comfort in things that will only fade away
Forgetting yet yearning for Your promises that stay

Father I just want to know You more
Ignore myself and seek You out
Prostrate myself crave what You have in store

Oh God just to be filled with Your Spirit in truth
Chains of darkness of my soul into pieces now broken
Remembering and languishing for the Words You’ve spoken
