A chasing of the wind

Every heart is filled with longing
to be free from all life’s pain
Yet the search through earthly pleasures
always ends in vain
Only God who made the heavens
can satisfy our souls
Apart from Him, and all His meaning
all things fail as they begin
And hearts deceived can only know a chasing of the wind
All achievements all possessions
all with time return to dust
Only God can be our reason
for deep and quiet trust
He will guard us from the dangers
that gladly make men fools
Apart from Him, and all His meaning
all things fail as they begin
And hearts deceived can only know a chasing of the wind
Why do we live without Jesus?
Why do we waste another day?
He is the life that sustains us
the only hope for us today
So why do we live,
why do we live without Him?
