Lyrics

There's a silent war that's raging deep within me
My lower nature fights to dominate
My spirit man is poised and locked in battle
With the carnal side of me I've grown to hate

The trumpet of my prayer is played towards Heaven
A voice of desperation in my cry
Lord, strengthen me that I might not yield myself to sin
But keep Your righteous banner lifted high

Lord, I hunger for holiness
And I thirst for the righteousness that's Yours
That my mind would be cleansed
And my spirit renewed
And this temple that You dwell in would be pure

The tempter stalks about me as a lion
Searching for the slightest scent of blood
For when the skin of my resistance is broken
He moves in swiftly to deepen the cut

Oh, Lord of Creation, hear Your servant
You understand the weaknesses of men
I'm counting myself crucified with Jesus
Alive to Christ and dead indeed to sin

Lord, I hunger for holiness
And I thirst for the righteousness that's Yours
That my mind would be cleansed
And my spirit renewed
And this temple that You dwell in would be pure

Yes, Lord
Oh, I hunger

Do I hunger for holiness?
Do I thirst for righteousness?
Do I want to do Your will?

Yes, Lord
I'm saying yes, Lord
Right now I'm saying yes
Oh, my soul says yes, Lord
Yes

I need you to touch me, Lord
Reach down and touch me, Lord
Right here and now, where I am
Oh yes, Lord
Oh yes, touch me, Jesus

Today I'm saying yes, Lord
Sweet Rose of Sharon
Lord, my soul thirsts
My soul says yes
