1039. My Heart Is Longing

1 Savior, now my heart is longing
For Thy wondrous saving grace;
Life has been a barren desert,
While my sins have hid Thy face.
Oft in anguish have I struggled,
Fought the blighting pow’r of sin,
But, o’ercome, cast down, and vanquished,
In each conflict have I been.

Refrain:
Savior, take my troubled spirit,
Long by sin oppressed;
In Thy mercy soothe and cheer it,
Give me peace and rest.

2 Savior, now my heart is longing
From this burden to be free;
Break, oh, break these galling fetters
That so long have pinioned me.
Let the sunshine of Thy presence
Banish all my gloom away,
Make this moment the beginning
Of a new and brighter day. [Refrain]

3 Savior, now my heart is longing
For the rest and peace and love
Thou canst send in great abundance
On me from Thy throne above.
I am weary, sad, and lonely,
I have wandered far from Thee;
But I come, I come repenting,
Lord, have mercy now on me. [Refrain]

4 Savior, now my heart is longing,
Thirsting for the rich supply
Of Thy grace, which, freely given,
All my soul can satisfy.
Come, oh, come with Thy sweet favor;
Waits my eager heart for Thee;
Then, enfolded in Thy glory,
Let me rest eternally. [Refrain]
