Some may run after power
And others for positions of wealth
Many who desire notoriety
And a few just simply for self.
The world may honor some diplomas
And the church may well do the same
But Christ is looking for His “Davids”
Whose pursuit is simply His face.
The hearts who will chase wholeheartedly
Through deep oceans even if they may drowned
But desperate they are for His presence
No matter the cost that rains down.
Where hidden in Christ is their longing
Where pleasures of the world are denied
For one day in His courts is better
Than a thousand anywhere, anytime.
