1. O blest are they who oft have said,
"I thirst for righteousness;
I hunger for the heav'nly Bread
With anguish and distress."
2. They of My fulness shall be fed,
For which they hungered sore;
And by the Living Waters led,
Their souls shall thirst no more.
3. Because I am the Truth, the Life,
All fulness dwells in me;
They know no want, no sin, no strife,
Thro' all eternity.
4. How blessed, then, to share a part
With those that hunger here;
To have the panting, thirsty heart,
And shed the bitter tear!
