I Have a Hunger

A song inspired by writings of Andrew Peterson and CS Lewis.

Romans 8:19-23

 

I have a hunger, I have a craving, I have an urging, a deep desire

I have a thirst, I have a yearning, And it’s burning like a fire

I have a hope, no, I have a want, No, I have a need deeper than my soul

I have a deep need to be loved and be made whole

 

I can see it in the movies

the son who needs His father

To tell him what He needs to know

And the man whose endless travels

Take him all around the world

But he can never find his home

The story being told

hits me hard within my chest

Settles down into the core of all I am

And I know right there and then, that it’s my own

 

You can see it on the sidewalks,

In the malls and on the highways

In pursuit of something sweet called satisfaction

Try to fill a raging hunger,

Try to pacify that hurt

Try to find a way to fix all that is broken

And every person that I see, is a mirror of myself

And I wish that I could turn away

For it seems to me that my pursuit will never end

 

It hurts so much sometimes

I join in with creation’s groans

It hurts so much sometimes

I join in with that nation’s cries

It hurts so much sometimes

I join in with creation’s groans

It hurts so much sometimes

I join in with that nation’s cries
