Verse 1
As pants the heart for cooling streams,
When heated in the chase,
So longs my soul, O God, for Thee,
And Thy refreshing grace

Verse 2
For Thee, my God, the living God,
My thirsty soul doth pine;
O when shall I behold Thy face,
Thou Majesty divine!

Verse 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

Verse 4
God of my strength, how shall I,
Like one forgotten mourn!
Forlorn, forsaken and exposed
To my oppressor's scorn

Verse 5
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
