MY SPIRIT LONGS FOR THEE (HYMN)

26 Jun

Holy Communion hymn

My spirit longs for thee

Within my troubled breast,

Though 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 bless-ed love:

O, let my wish be crowned,

And send it from above!

– J. Byrom, 1692-1763
