    Verse 1
    What is the thing that I long for?
    What is my hope or my desire?
    How I crave to follow the Lamb
    And I His image to adopt.

    Verse 2
    All my hope, Lord on Thee is stayed
    I long to be the one you love
    I want to be saved here on earth
    And fellowship with Thee above.

    Verse 3
    I hunger for the Lord of life
    Who died for me on Calvary
    For the source of water and blood
    That from Thy wounded side which flowed

    Verse 4
    I desire Thy water of love
    Spirit of joy that's yet unknown
    Grant that I may yet drink above
    As it does stream forth from Thy throne.
