We panic, we quake at the thought of distance 
We want You to stay and not leave 
You give, Lord, and You take away from us 
Yet you've promised to stay and not leave 
Lest we confuse Your hand with Your Spirit 
That when You withdraw something good 
You still haven't left, Lord, You're near us 
And sometimes its best when You leave us
Lacking, wanting, worrying, waiting
Watching for the day You'll return! 
Lacking, leaning, clinging, cleaving
Watching for the day for which we yearn 
For the Day You'll return!
