1. As pants the hart for cooling streams,
When heated in the chase,
So longs my soul, O God, for Thee
And Thy refreshing grace.
2. For Thee, my God, the living God,
My thirsty soul doth pine;
O when shall I behold Thy face,
Thou Majesty Divine?
3. Why restless, why cast down my soul?
Trust God, Who will employ
His aid for Thee, and change these sighs
To thankful hymns of joy.
4. Why restless, why cast down, my soul?
Hope still, and thou shalt sing
The praise of Him Who is thy God,
Thy health’s eternal spring.
