Como el ciervo (Like a Deer)

Full Text

Like a deer, seeking streams of water,
so my soul cries with longing for you, O Lord;
day and night, I thirst for only you,
and you alone do I seek.
Fill me, Lord. Fill me, O my Lord.
Give me more, more of your great love.
I thirst for you, only for you.
Fill my heart, O Lord.

Spanish:
Como el ciervo busca por loas aquas,
así clama mi alma por ti, Señor;
dia y noche yo tengo se de ti
y sólo a ti buscaré;
lléname, lléname, Señor,
dame más, más de tu amor;
yo tengo sed sólo de ti,
lléname, Señor.

Further Reflections on Confessions and Statements of Faith References

In a world with many threats and enemies, we find hope and security in his fatherly care. Both Belgic Confession and Heidelberg Catechism put significant focus on the Providence of God and the care God provides for us. Heidelberg Catechism, Lord’s Day 9, Question and Answer 26 professes that he “will provide whatever I need for body and soul” and that we are “completely in his hand.” In Belgic Confession, Article 13 professes that he “watches over us with fatherly care.”

Additional Prayers

O God, our Help in past, present, and future days,
you know our deepest thoughts and needs before we can even express them.
When our world turns upside down, help us to remember happier days—
not as something lost, but as a foretaste of good things yet to come.
We pray in the name of the coming King. Amen.
