HUNGERING AFTER RIGHTEOUSNESS




Happy the man whose heaving breast
Bespeaks a mind with grief oppressed;
Who pants for Jesusí righteousness,
And prays for sanctifying grace.


God will his various wants supply,
And all his longings satisfy;
By living streams shall he be led,
And daily feast on living bread.


On those who thirst for holiness,
Christ will bestow both grace and peace;
For them a heaven has he prepared,
And is himself their great reward.
