My Spirit longs for thee
Within my troubled breastThough I unworthy be
Of so divine a guest.

Of so divine a guest
Unworthy though I be
Yet has my heart no rest
Unless it come from thee.

Unless it come from thee
In vain I look around
In all that I can see
No rest is to be found.

No rest is to be found
But in thy blessed love
O let my wish be crowned
And send it from above.
