AS pants the hart for living streams,

So. Lord, I pant for thee;

And where thy worshippers are found,

My dwelling place shall be.

No earthly idol e'er shall tempt

My steadfast soul to rove,

For I desire no higher bliss

Than to enjoy thy love.

Give me but this, I nought can ask,

I nought can wish beside;

For in thy faithfulness and truth

I safely can confide.

Blest with this gift, for earthly joys

I never can repine;

But gladly yield myself to thee,

To be forever thine.
