Lord, Thee my God,
I'll early seek:
My soul doth thirst for Thee;
My flesh longs in a dry parch'd land,
Wherein no waters be.
That I Thy power may behold,
And brightness ofThy face,
My panting heart now yearns to stand
Within Thy holy place.
Since better is Thy love than life,
My lips Thee praise shall give:
I in Thy name will lift my hands,
And bless Thee while I live.
4 E'en as with marrow and with fat,
My soul shall filled be:
Then shall my mouth with joyful lips
Sing praises unto Thee.
