My One Desire

by Rick Founds, Larry Holder,
Steve Israel and Elton Smith

I wrote the music with some assistance from Steve. Larry suggested the opening line of the chorus, from which Rick developed the rest of chorus, taking a simple stone and creating from it a multi-faceted jewel. Larry and Steve wrote most of the other lyrics. I made some suggestion on the bridge. - Elton, April 15, 2003.

(Verse 1)
You love me as a Father loves His child
Your boundless grace pours out to me;
I am fully reconciled.
Your Spirit calls, and I reply,
"Lord lead me day by day
To know Your perfect will, Your holy Way."

(Chorus)
My one desire - to know You in the fullness of Your Grace
To hear "Well done, my precious one"
when we meet face to face
Lord, I aspire to please You in obedience and faith
For You, my God, are worthy of all praise.

(Verse 2)
Your favor has sustained me all my days
The faithfulness You've shown to me;
Oh, how awesome are Your ways.
My heart cries out; I can't contain
The joy that lives in me,
To know that You give life, abundantly!

(Repeat chorus)
My one desire - to know You in the fullness of Your Grace
To hear "Well done, my precious one"
when we meet face to face
Lord, I aspire to please You in obedience and faith
For You, my God, are worthy of all praise.

(Bridge)
As night gives way to morning
I'll arise to meet the dawn
As Your Spirit deep within me
Gives me strength to carry on,
Carry on...

(Repeat chorus)
My one desire - to know You in the fullness of Your Grace
To hear "Well done, my precious one"
when we meet face to face
Lord, I aspire to please You in obedience and faith
For You, my God, are worthy of all praise.

(Ending)
For You, my God, are worthy of all praise.
For You, my God, are worthy of all praise.
