Longing for Heaven and Glory

Jesus, I thirst, and go I must

Published in 5 hymnals

Full Text

1 Jesus, I thirst, and go I must,
I long to be above,
I long to sing to Christ my king,
Where oceans flow with love.

2 Ye happy souls that always roll
In love and joy and peace,
Which always run through God's dear son
Whose love will never cease.

3 You're blest I say and you shall stay
With Jesus Christ above,
And always swim along with him,
In oceans full of love.

4 Glory to God the Father be,
Glory to God the Son,
Glory to God the Holy Ghost,
Glory to God alone.
