'Til I Only Dwell in Thee...


This is a beautiful hymn I jumped across on YouTube recently. With each listen, I am struck by the writer's simple cry to the ever-living God, "if my heart has one ambition...that I only dwell in Thee..." So simple, yet so poignant all the same. My heart abounds with joy knowing that if I ask the Lord this same question, "Would you leave to look for me?", it will be met with a resounding Yes. Leaving 99 indeed.
One goal for our souls to seek, one ambition for our hearts, one solitary vision for us...to dwell in Christ and Christ alone. Oh, that I may know the richness of these prayers & see them fulfilled! I pray this for you all as well.

(lyrics below)
If to distant lands I scatter
If I sail to farthest seas
Would you find and firm and gather 'til I only dwell in Thee?
If I flee from greenest pastures
Would you leave to look for me?
Forfeit glory to come after
'Til I only dwell in Thee
If my heart has one ambition
If my soul one goal to seek
This my solitary vision 'til I only dwell in Thee
That I only dwell in Thee
'Til I only dwell in Thee
