Full Text

1 The world is bright and life is gay,
My heart keeps longing for Jesus;
With pleasure thronging ev’ry day,
My heart keeps longing for Him.

Refrain:
I’m longing for Jesus now,
I’m longing for Jesus now,
Through ev’ry day, along the way,
My heart keeps longing for Him.

2 I sought for joy but all in vain,
My heart keeps longing for Jesus;
The world could give no lasting gain,
My heart keeps longing for Him. [Refrain]

3 When Jesus comes He satisfies,
My heart keeps longing for Jesus;
At His command each pleasure flies,
My heart keeps longing for Him. [Refrain]

4 This world can give no inward rest,
My heart keeps longing for Jesus;
‘Tis He alone who stands the test,
My heart keeps longing for Him. [Refrain]
