Today I will not be content
Today I want more, more, more
More awareness of His love for me
That too often I blindly ignore

Today I will not be satisfied
Today I desire to know
More, more fully His plan for me
And where He would choose me to go

Today I want more, more hunger
For things not of flesh, but of Him
More gentle loving kindness
Before this day-moment grows dim

Today I refuse to be content
But I will not lust after things
I want more of what earth can’t afford
But knowing Him more fully brings

Today Lord, give me holy hunger
Oh my God, I beg and implore
For more compassion for my fellow-man
Oh God, give me more, more, more
