Your Love Is Finer Than Life


As I sat down to write, the words of a song of this title based on Psalm 63 by Marty Haugen began running through my mind.  The melody is almost haunting, and the words of the refrain certainly echo and capture the essence of giving oneself to God in vocation to the consecrated life or the priesthood. 

Together, let's pray these lyrics and let them resonate in our hearts in new and deeper levels than we ever thought possible:

Oh God, I seek You.  My soul thirsts for You.  Your love is finer than life.
As a dry and weary desert land, so my soul is thirsting for my God, and my flesh is faint for the God I seek, for Your love is more than life.
Oh God, I seek You.  My soul thirsts for You.  Your love is finer than life.
I think of You when at night I rest.  I reflect upon Your steadfast love.  I will cling to You, Oh Lord my God.  In the shadow of Your wings I sing.
Oh God, I seek You.  My soul thirsts for You.  Your love is finer than life.
I will bless Your name all the days I live. I raise my hands and call on You. My joyful lips shall sing your praise. You alone have filled my hungry soul.
Oh God, I seek You.  My soul thirsts for You.  Your love is finer than life.
