dwell

there are days when i am joyfully resting in this place.
but today, i need the mountains. 
i need to get in car, with a great person, and drive, to where i am surrounded by trees, and stars, and campfires and streams and mountains. 
and where i can wear a sweater




 If to distant lands I scatter
If I sail to farthest seas
Would you find and firm and gather 'til I only dwell in Thee?
If I flee from greenest pastures
Would you leave to look for me?
Forfeit glory to come after
'Til I only dwell in Thee

If my heart has one ambition
If my soul one goal to seek
This my solitary vision 'til I only dwell in Thee
That I only dwell in Thee
'Til I only dwell in Thee
