thou fount of life, thou light of all,
from the best bliss that earth imparts
we turn, unfilled, to heed thy call.
2 Thy truth unchanged hath ever stood;
thou savest those that on thee call;
to them that seek thee thou art good,
to them that find thee all in all.
3 We taste thee, O thou living bread,
and long to feast upon thee still;
we drink of thee, the fountainhead
and thirst our souls from thee to fill.
4 Our restless spirits yearn for thee,
where'er our changeful lot is cast,
Glad when thy gracious smile we see,
blest when our faith can hold thee fast.
5 O Jesus, ever with us stay;
make all our moments calm and bright;
chase the dark night of sin away,
shed o'er the world thy holy light.
