i need you lyrics – julie miller

my heart is restless in me
my wings are all worn out
i’m walking in the wilderness
and i cannot get out

i need you, oh i need you
blessed savior come
i need you, oh i need you
fill the every longing of my soul

oh how i need you lord
i need your perfect word
with tearful eyes i see
the sin that i afford
i need to weep and pray
for all the thousand ways
that i have failed you just today

and my bed is soaked with sadness
my sadness has no end
a downward spiral of despair
that i keep falling in

i need you, oh i need you
to you my soul shall fly
i need you, oh i need you
yahweh how i love you more than life

oh how i need you lord
i need your perfect word
with tearful eyes i see
the sin that i afford
i need to weep and pray
for all the thousand ways
that i have failed you just today

your silence is like death to me
so won’t you hear my desperate plea

today my soul is soaring
way over mountains high
though i can see the valleys
they are all just p*ssing by
its not that i am stronger
look at my feeble wings
but i’ve been lifted higher
yahweh’s lifted me in his own strength

oh how i love you lord
i love your perfect word
with tearful eyes i see
the god who always will endure
now i will celebrate
for all the thousand ways
that you have shown me grace

and made my heart in grace to stay
you made my heart in grace to stay
lord, make my heart in grace to stay
i need you, oh i need you
