9 I’m looking for a person I once knew

Before ministry as a priest took over my life, I used to have some really blessed quiet times, alone with God.

I think he’s been looking for me for some time now. Yes I pray, but have I lost that sense of real intimacy?

Have you?

G D G

I'm looking for a person I once knew

C D G Em

A person who once marvelled at expansive skies of blue,

Am D

Singing birds and dancing fountains,

B7 Em

Rippling brooks and lofty mountains,

G D G

In her heart the world danced into view…

C G C

I've not seen her in a long, long time…

G

Have you?

G D G

I'm looking for a person I knew well,

C D G Em

At least I thought I did, but now I really cannot tell.

Am D

Heart of flesh, transparent, kind

B7 Em

So quick to offer of her time

G D G

Delighted in the tasks that she would do…

C G C

I've not seen her in a long, long time…

G

Have you? (Instrumental verse as in verse 3 below)

G D G

I'm looking for a child who once was free,

C D G Em

I'm hoping very shortly she'll come running back to me,

Am D

Now so anxious, sometimes blind,

B7 Em

With far too much upon her mind,

G D G

Instead of being still she has to 'do'

C G C

I haven't seen her in a long, long time

C G C

I've not seen her in a long, long time

G

Have you?
