THIRSTING FOR GOD




As the thirsty hart when panting
After the refreshing brook,
Thus my fainting soul for succour,
Eagerly to God would look:
|: Lord refresh me, :|
I for thee have all forsook.


If with wealth and power encompassed,
I in these no comfort find;
Not the world with all its pleasures
E’er can satisfy the mind:
|: All ‘s a phantom, :|
Light and fleeting as the wind.


let the Indies pour their treasures,
With redundance at my feet;
These would I reject as trifles,
Thine endeared embrace to meet:
|: Bless’d Redeemer, :|
Thou canst make my bliss complete.
