1 As pants the hart for cooling streams
When heated in the case,
So longs my soul, O God, for you
And your refreshing grace.

2 For you, my God, the living God,
My thirsty spirit pines;
Oh, when shall I behold your face,
O Majesty divine!

3 One trouble calls another on
And gathers overhead,
Falls splashing down, till round my soul
A rising sea is spread.

4 Why restless, why cast down, my soul?
Hope still, and you shall sing
The praise of him who is your God,
Your health's eternal spring.

5 For now I trust in God for strength,
I trust him to employ
His love for me and change my sighs
to thankful hymns of joy.
