Lyrics

As a bride, blushing bides
on the bed for the touch of her love to arrive
Other passions call and loom
but she will wait for her groom
Just the same
I am restless for you

As the vagrant, dreams of vacant
lands to plow, and a hearth to call home
but each distance only fails him
so he'll keep drifting through
Just the same
I am restless for you

You loved me first
and fully when nothing lovely existed
All before then grew dim
in the light of desire awakened
All else be cursed
I choose rather this thirst

No man, no land
no task for my hand ever soothes
I stay restless for you
All I am, was made for You and no other will do
I stay restless for you

You loved me first
and fully when nothing lovely existed
gifted grace til my heart
could awaken, embrace, and return it
All I see now
every goodness, each beauty and blessing
are but tremor and wake
and stir me further to love and to longing

Only for you, only for you
does my soul wait
do my bones ache
I'll not be satisfied
til my hopes and my eyes
both alight on that view

There leave longing behind
I'll discard my desire
when I 'm resting in you

No man, no land
no task for my hand ever soothes
I stay restless for you

END
