Longing
By Lance Landall

I知 longing for a Christian, Lord, who痴 more than one by name,
Yes, one who truly is one, not just one who makes that claim.
I知 longing for a Christian, who痴 a Christian through and through,
Not just one who thinks they are, but one, who truly knows You.

I知 longing for a Christian, who値l accept me as I am,
One whose love is unconditional, not flawed, nor a sham.
I知 longing for a Christian, whose life will reveal to me,
A deep and tender love, Lord, that痴 lasting and Heavenly.

I知 longing for a Christian, who can see past all my faults,
One who won稚 dwell on my past, nor unfortunate results.
I知 longing for a Christian, who値l encourage, but not force,
And whose patient confidence, will help me to stay the course.

I知 longing for a Christian, who値l be there if I should fall,
One who will not tire of me, one who値l be there when I call.
I知 longing for a Christian, who will pray on bended knee,
Every day throughout the week, on my behalf, fervently.

I知 longing for a Christian, who値l defend me when I知 right,
One who won稚 discard me, if via sinning, my walk I blight.
I知 longing for a Christian, who my failings won稚 deride,
One I can put my trust in, one in whom I can confide.

I知 longing for a Christian, whose actions will show I知 loved,
One who, if there痴 need to chide, will see every word comes gloved.
I知 longing for a Christian, who値l search for me, should I stray,
One who値l keep in touch with me, one who値l thought and care display.

I知 longing for a Christian, who値l always act like You do,
Especially when I知 sad, hurting, or discouraged too.
Will I ever find one, Lord, or will such folk not be found,
探ill at Your second coming, Lord, and strident trumpet sound?
