As Pants The Hart For Cooling Streams (Martyrdom – 4 Verses) – Organ

As Pants The Hart For Cooling Streams ~ Lyrics

As pants the hart for cooling streams,
When heated in the chase,
So longs my soul, O God, for Thee
And Thy refreshing grace.

For Thee, my God, the living God,
My thirsty soul doth pine;
O, when shall I behold Thy face,
Thou majesty divine?

Why restless, why cast down, my soul?
Hope still; and thou shalt sing
The praise of Him who is thy God,
Thy health’s eternal spring.

To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
The God whom we adore,
Be glory as it was, is now,
And shall be evermore.

Meter: CM. Lyrics from Psalm 42 in New Version Publisher: Tate and Brady (1696)
