Longing

My new single "Longing" is out now. I was on a songwriting retreat a while ago and my friend Tim got a phone call one night telling him that his Grandad had passed away. He sat on his bed and started singing the melody to the verse of this song. We worked on it together wanting to sing about eternity and the longing that is in our hearts to meet our Saviour face to face. It took another 18 months to finish but during lockdown with the help of another couple of friends "Longing" was completed. You're welcome to use the video during any live or online Church services. I pray it encourages you.

Lyrics

Longing

Written by Olly Knight, Tim Mann, Phil Moore & Josh Rayner

 

In our hearts there is a longing

For our true eternal home

Where we’ll see our precious Saviour

And we’ll worship round the throne 

 

Oh the glory we will see

Oh the wonder that awaits

 

Jesus, how we long for You

To see You face to face

Dwelling with our Saviour

Lost in wonder, love and praise

 

There’ll be no more grief or sadness

You will wipe our tears away

We’ll be clothed in righteous garments

When we meet You on that day
