Lord Oh, how I missed You When I was blinded by sin Lost in ignorance Convincing myself I knew You Yet was so far away from the Truth Gracious Lord Oh, how I missed serving You My heart sings with joy My soul at rest in obedience to Your ways Oh, how I missed worshipping Your Holy Name when I was in darkness But now in the Light I will turn to You with a smile Foolish joy shall fill my spirit Even when I break apart Tear into two or more I shall praise You Lord Oh, how I missed glorifying You My soul searched and searched Sought after meaning, love, and purpose Always returning empty and unfruitful I never knew how much I missed You Lord How much jubilation and celebration enter me when I glorify You And how much my heart yearned for You To obey in fullness To adore in completeness To make myself void for Your purposes How I missed You Lord How I longed to sing Your praises May my voice shout out to You in worship In sickness and exhaustion In brokenness and mourning In joy and health May my voice shout until it releases its last breath of song Even then, may Your Holy Name be lifted high.
