02. Looking For You

by Kirk Franklin


Verse 1

Iíve been down so long
Iíve been hurt for so long
There were times I thought Iíd never see the break of day
It was hard for me to see Your plan for me
And I tried to believe struggling wonít last always

See night after night I prayed Lord
Donít take Your joy from me
And then late one night
I read in Your love letter that itís gonna get better

Donít You know that Iíve been looking for You
I realize nothing else will satisfy [me]
Iím so glad I found You

Now that Iím changed
No one can keep me away from You

Verse 2

When my enemies tried to come for me
And they thought that my world was coming to an end
All the while You knew that I would make it through
I feel closer to You now than when I first began
Jesus You are, You are my sunlight after the rain
So wherever You are I just wanna be near You
Iím so glad I can hear You
