421. Ah! Lord, with Late Regret I Own

1 Ah! Lord, with late regret I own,
I have the double evil done,
Forsook the Spring of life and peace,
And toiled for earthly happiness.

2 But what in the I sought in pain,
I could not from the creatures gain,
The cisterns which my folly hewed
They would not hold one drop of good.

3 Now for my double sin I grieve,
Again the broken cisterns leave,
Again I after Thee would go,
And gasp they only love to know.

4 Fountain of true felicity,
Eternal God, spring up in me,
And filled with life and love and power
My heart shall never wander more.
