Longing to Be Free at Last

by Jann Aldredge-Clanton

Exodus 16:1-12; Deuteronomy 34:1-4

Ruah Spirit, illumine peaceful ways;
we are longing to be free at last;
give us courage to end oppressive days;
we are longing to be free at last.

Ruah Spirit, help all to end the strife;
we are longing to be free at last;
through the wilderness, send your bread of life;
we are longing to be free at last.

Ruah Spirit, reveal the promised land;
we are longing to be free at last;
guide us evermore with Your powerful hand;
we are longing to be free at last.

Refrain:

Longing, longing, filled with a hope that holds us fast,
longing, longing, we are longing to be free at last.
