Song v. Song: Waterfall v. Satisfied in You
By Chris Tomlin
Verse 1 Oh God, my God I seek You I wanna move when You move You're more than I could long for I thirst for You Chorus You're an ocean to my soul To my soul Your love is like a waterfall, waterfall Running wild and free You hear my heart when I call, when I call Deep calls, too deep Your love is like a waterfall, waterfall Raining down on me waterfall, waterfall Verse 2 Oh God, my God I seek You In this dry and desert land You lead me to streams of mercy Once again Bridge It's coming like a flood I'm dancing in the rain Everything I've done Is covered in rivers of grace, amazing
O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water. - Psalm 63:1
7 Deep calls to deep at the roar of your waterfalls; all your breakers and your waves have gone over me. 8 By day the LORD commands his steadfast love, and at night his song is with me, a prayer to the God of my life. - Psalm 42:7-8

[Verse 1] 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?" [Pre-Chorus 1] Why are you downcast, oh my soul? Why so disturbed within me? I can remember when you showed your face to me [Chorus] As a deer pants for water, so my soul thirsts for You And when I behold Your glory, 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 brings me down So itʼs time to lift my brow And remember better days When I loved to worship You and all Your ways With the sweetest songs of praise [Pre-Chorus 2] Why are you downcast, oh my soul? Why so disturbed within me? I can remember when you showed your grace to me [Chorus] 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 [Bridge] 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 Iʼm safe [Post-Bridge] So why am I down? Why so disturbed? I am satisfied in You
