814. As Men Seek for Hidden Treasure

1 As men seek for hidden treasure,
As for rain thirsts the drying sod,
As the hart pants after water,
So my heart pants after God.

2 I seek not for worldly pleasure,
I pray not for earthly store;
My whole soul goes after Jesus—
I am seeking nothing more.

3 Oh, to be holy, holy, holy,
Like my Savior every day,
To be filled with all His fullness,
’Tis for this I pray and pray.
