1 What now is my object and aim?
What now is my hope and desire?
To follow the heavenly Lamb,
And after his image aspire;
My hope is all centered in thee:
I trust to recover thy love;
On earth thy salvation to see,
And then to enjoy thee above.
2 I thirst for a life-giving God;
A God that on Calvary dy'd;
A fountain of water and blood,
Which gush'd from Immanuel's side!
I gasp for the stream of thy love,
The spirit if rapture unknown;
And then to redrink it above,
Eternally fresh from the throne.
