1 O God, my gracious God, to Thee
My mourning prayers shall offer'd be,
For Thee my thirsty soul doth pant;
My fainting flesh implores Thy grace,
As in a dry and barren place
Where I refreshing waters want.

2 O to my longing eyes once more
That view of glorious power restore,
Which Thy majestic house displays:
Because to me thy wondrous love
Than life itself does dearer prove,
My lips shall always speak Thy praise.

3 My life, while I that life enjoy,
In blessing God I will employ,
With lifted hands adore His Name:
As with its choicest food supplied,
My soul shall be full satisfied,
While I with joy His praise proclaim.

4 When down I lie, sweet sleep to find,
Thou, Lord, art present to my mind,
And when I wake in dead of night,
Because Thou still dost succour bring,
Beneath the shadow of Thy wing
I rest with safety and delight.
