    As the deer panteth for the water is a very beautiful song the origins of which are rather obscure. However, it is know to have originated from old religious texts, specifically from Psalm 42:1. The text arrangement which I use is attributed to the 19th C minister, Robert Murray M'Cheyne. The melody which I presented was composed by Martin J. Nystrom in 1984.

    I love this song so much because it talk about my deep yearning for God whom I hope to see some day. The writer uses the analogy of a deer and the running stream to express our desire or quest to drink from the infinite fountain of the divine. Our souls at times can be so thirsty and weary and desirous of refreshment. It is a song of love and deep yearning for our maker and Father.

    But besides that, I find the melody, lyrics and progression really touching. The musicality of the song alone is perhaps enough for me to love it. It is very calm, soothing and warm and I tried to present it as best as I can. I feel so grateful to be able to play this song on the piano and sing it as well. It is as though the writer of the melody tailored it to sooth 'my' own desires and personal way of expression.

    I chose this song because I think it will resonate with many people. If not by its lyrics and content, then just by the calmness of the music. I hope people find peace in it.

    I hope you enjoy it my dear friends. Thank you for watching.


    Como el ciervo Panteth for the Water es una canción muy hermosa cuyos orígenes son bastante oscuros. Sin embargo, se sabe que se ha originado en antiguos textos religiosos, específicamente del Salmo 42:1. El arreglo de texto que utilizo se atribuye al ministro del siglo XIX, Robert Murray M'Cheyne. La melodía que presenté fue compuesta por Martin J. Nystrom en 1984. Me encanta esta canción porque habla de mi profundo anhelo de Dios a quien espero ver algún día. El escritor usa la analogía de un ciervo y la corriente que corre para expresar nuestro deseo o búsqueda de beber de la fuente infinita de lo divino. Nuestras almas a veces pueden ser tan sedientas y cansadas y deseosas de refresco. Es un canto de amor y profundo anhelo de nuestro Hacedor y Padre. Pero además de eso, encuentro que la melodía, la letra y la progresión son realmente conmovedoras. La musicalidad de la canción por sí sola quizás sea suficiente para que yo la ame. Es muy tranquilo, calmante y cálido y traté de presentarlo lo mejor que puedo. Me siento muy agradecida de poder tocar esta canción en el piano y cantarla también. Es como si el escritor de la melodía la adaptara para tranquilizar 'mis' deseos propios y una forma de expresión personal. Elegí esta canción porque creo que va a resonar con mucha gente. Si no por sus letras y contenido, entonces solo por la calma de la música. Espero que la gente encuentre la paz en él. Espero que lo disfruten mis queridos amigos. Gracias por mirar.
