1. Like a deer to the water, so I long for my Father,
For my God, and no other, how my soul flies away!
You, the lovely and pure Light, in the day and the midnight
Eyes are longing for Your sight, tears flow at Your delay.
2. Flying over the water, my eternal Creator,
My Redeemer and Saviour, Jesus, King of all kings.
How my heart longs each hour, as a bee for the flowers,
As a desert for showers, as a deer to the springs.
3. In the souls who seek pleasure, ease, and comfort, and leisure,
Laughter too, without measure, Christ can never be found.
How I long for that highness, where lives brotherly kindness,
Pure affection, not dryness, there, where true love abounds.

6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
1 As the hart pants after the water brooks, so pants my soul after you, O God.
2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?
Song of Solomon 3
1 By night on my bed I sought him whom my soul loves: I sought him, but I found him not.
2 I will rise now, and go about the city in the streets, and in the broad ways I will seek him whom my soul loves: I sought him, but I found him not.
3 The voice of the Lord is upon the waters: the God of glory thunders: the Lord is upon many waters.
29 But if from thence you shall seek the Lord your God, you shall find him, if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul.
Song of Solomon 3
4 It was but a little that I passed from them, but I found him whom my soul loves: I held him, and would not let him go, until I had brought him into my mother’s house, and into the chamber of her that conceived me.
