As the Deer
We sang this song at church last Sunday, and it brought to mind these friends that often come to visit me when I am on Evergreen Mountain in Colorado. They are mother and daughter. We named them Little Flock and Amber Flock. 'Little' received her name because I was reading, "Do not fear, Little Flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom," from scripture when I looked up and saw her staring back at me through the front window.
I have had her on my mind. When I spoke to my Colorado friend this afternoon about my trip there in June she said Little has been coming by their cabin. I am so anxious to see these deer, and perhaps the bear; surely the foxes, elk, and perhaps a moose when we take our couple days away somewhere else in the state.
Just ponder these beautiful words, and sing them if you know the tune.
Thank you Martin Nystrom for this beautiful work!
As the deer panteth for the water,
So my soul longeth after Thee.
You alone are my heart's desire,
And I long to worship Thee
