Satisfied In You (Psalm 42)


I have lost my appetite

And a flood is welling up

Behind my eyes

So I eat the tears I cry

And if that were not enough

They know just the words to cut

And tear and prod

When they ask me

“Whereʼs your God?”



Why are you downcast

Oh my soul?

Why so disturbed within me?

I can remember when you

Showed your grace to me



As a deer pants for water

So my soul thirsts for you

And when I survey Your splendor

You so faithfully renew

Like a bed of rest

For my fainting flesh

I am satisfied in you


[Verse 2] 

When Iʼm staring at the ground

Itʼs an inbred feedback loop

That drags me down

So itʼs time to lift my brow

And remember better days

When I loved to worship you

And all your ways

Singing sweetest songs of praise



Let my sighs give way to songs

That sing about your faithfulness

Let my pain reveal your glory

As my only real rest

Let my losses show me

All I truly have is you

‘Cause all I truly have is You


[Verse 3] 

So when Iʼm drowning out at sea

And your breakers and your waves

Crash down on me

Iʼll recall your safety scheme

Youʼre the one who made the waves

And your Son went out

To suffer in my place

And to tell me that I’m safe



Why am I down?

Why so disturbed?

I am satisfied in you

I am satisfied in you

I am satisfied in you

I am satisfied in you
