Jesus I long

This is the first worship song that Wendy and I wrote together.
It was inspired during a time at the 'worship together' conference in February 1997 in Eastbourne.
It is based on Psalm 51and was written to be sung as both a song of repentance and a crying to God for that 'first joy'

below are the lyrics for 'Jesus I long'

Jesus, I long For more of the life that you have given
Yearning to feel The love that I first knew
Draw me closer in your presence
I'm crying out, have mercy, O Lord

Restore to me the joy of Your salvation
Let me feel the warmth of Your embrace
Unfailing love and great compassion
In your presence is fullness of life


Open my lips And my mouth will declare Your praise

Andrew & Wendy Rayner
