Hymn 42Mourning and Longing The Saviour hides his face! My spirit thirsts to proveRenew’d supplies of pard’ning grace, And never-fading love. The favor’d souls who know What glories shine in him,Pant for his presence, as the roe Pants for the living stream! What trifles teaze me now! They swarm like summer flies,They cleave to ev’ry thing I do, And swim before my eyes. How dull the sabbath day, Without the sabbath’s Lord!How toilsome then to sing and pray, And wait upon the word! Of all the truths I hear How few delight my taste!I glean a berry here and there, But mourn the vintage past. Yet let me (as I ought) Still hope to be supply’d;No pleasure else is worth a thought, Nor shall I be deny’d. Tho’ I am but a worm, Unworthy of his care,The Lord will my desire perform, And grant me all my pray’r.
