    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
