Representative Text

1 Searching, seeking, groping,
Hungry, thirsty, cold,
Looking, sighing, hoping,
For the peace untold;
I am full of longing,
Loving and unrest,
While the sad thoughts thronging,
Crowd my troubled breast.

Fainting for salvation,
Lo! I come to thee;
Jesus, mighty, Savior,
Do thou pity me.

2 Dreary falls the even,
Sadly breaks the morn,
I am unforgiven,
Tired, weary, worn;
Sin has naught to give me,
Save the cup of woe,
Home can never shield me,
From my sleepless foe. [Chorus]

3 Beauties of the heaven,
Treasures of the deep,
Cannot charm my driven,
Restless soul to sleep;
Oh, this fainting, longing,
Weary, tired soul,
Full of sad thoughts thronging,
Longing to be whole. [Chorus]
