Hymn/Song Information

As thirst the hart for water brooks




As thirst the hart for water brooks,
So thirsts my soul, O God, for Thee;
It seeks for God, and ever looks,
|:And longs the living God to see.:|


Far from the courts of God, my tears
Have been my food by night and day,
While constantly with bitter sneers,
|:Where is thy God? the scoffers say.:|


With grief I think of days gone by,
When oft I trod the hallowed way
To Zion, praising God on high
|:With throngs who kept the holy day.:|


O why art thou cast down, my soul,
And why so troubled shouldst thou be?
Hope thou in God, and Him extol,
|:Who gives His saving help to me.:|
