B. E., Arr.


O CHRIST in Thee my soul hath found,

And found in Thee alone,

The peace, the joy I sought so long,

The bliss till now unknown.

Now none but Christ can satisfy,

None other name for me;

There’s love and life and lasting joy,

Lord Jesus, found in Thee.


I sighed for rest and happiness,

I yearned for them, not Thee;

But, while I passed my Saviour by,

His love laid hold on me.


I tried the broken cisterns, Lord,

But, ah, the waters failed!

E’en as I stooped to drink they fled,

And mocked me as I wailed.


The pleasures lost I sadly mourned,

But never wept for Thee,

Till grace the sightless eyes received,

Thy loveliness to see.
