My Soul Hungered

Oh, my soul hungered, 
My heart cried out: 
"Please Lord, release me 
From pain and from doubt." 
Oh, my soul hungered 
The moment I knelt down to pray, 
And felt all my doubts Wash away. 

Oh, my soul hungered, 
He heard my cry. 
The voice of the Lord 
Spoke peace to my mind. 
Oh, my soul hungered- 
Things that were old became new 
When I learned to feel 
What I already knew. 

With all my heart, 
With all my soul, 
I wrestled before the Lord 
To make my life whole. 
He filled my hunger- 
He fed my soul. 
He fed my soul. 

The truth that belonged 
To everyone else 
Is now a sacred part of myself. 
Oh, I found out what I could not find, 
When I heard with my heart 
What I knew in my mind. 
With all my heart, 
With all my soul, 
I wrestled before the Lord 
To make my life whole. 
He filled my hunger- 
He fed my soul. 
He fed my soul. 

Oh, my soul hungered.
