What Now Is My Object And Aim

What now is my object and aim?
What now is my hope and desire?
To follow the heavenly Lamb,
And after his image aspire;
My hope is all centered in thee:
I trust to recover thy love;
On earth thy salvation to see,
And then to enjoy thee above.

I thirst for a life-giving God;
A God that on Calvary dy’d;
A fountain of water and blood,
Which gush’d from Immanuel’s side!
I gasp for the stream of thy love,
The spirit if rapture unknown;
And then to redrink it above,
Eternally fresh from the throne.
