1 Again, indulgent Lord, I come;
Again to tell my wants presume;
I want to know thee as thou art;
I want to find thee in my heart.
2 I want to feel I die to sin;
I would no longer live therein:
No earthly bliss can do me good,
I want the balm of Jesu's blood.
3 I want acquaintance with the Lamb,
To know the virtues of his name;
I want assurance of my faith;
I want a conquest over death.
4 I want to be made free indeed,
And trample on the serpent's head:
I want my wants to be supply'd,
And have ten thousand wants beside.
5 I want—I want my wants to know;
I want in faith and hope to grow:
I want thyself! this favour grant,
And thou has granted all I want.
