1 Lord! Thou source of all perfection,
Fountain of eternal love,
Fill the famished soul that thirsteth
For the waters from above.
From all evil passions purge me,
In the path of justice urge me,
Teach my heart to love but Thee,
Thou whoever lovest me.
2 Lord, in Thee I have my being,
All I am to Thee I owe,
Ev'ry heav'nward aspiration,
Ev'ry thought from Thee doth flow;
Of Thy goodness and Thy power
Blessings daily on us shower;
Fount of heav'nly Love Thou art,
Spring Thou up within my heart.
3 Blessed stream of our atonement
From the cross of Christ that flowed,
Fellowship with Him in glory,
Hope of all eternal good,
On my path His light and leading,
And His grace, all grace exceeding,--
All the blessings from above
Prompt me to return Thy love.
4 Grant, O God, the power to love Thee
Here in truth and holiness,
Till my love be full and perfect
In the realms of heavenly bliss,
When, translated into glory,
With Thy countenance shining o'er me,
I shall drink with saints above
From the well-spring of Thy love.
