And bid your longing appetites
The rich provision taste.
 
4 Ho! ye that pant for living streams,
And pine away and die,
Here you may quench your raging thirst
With springs that never dry.
 
5 Rivers of love and mercy here,
In a rich ocean join;
Salvation in abundance flows
Like floods of milk and wine.
 
6 The gates of glorious gospel grace,
Stand open night and day:
Lord, we are come to seek supplies,
And drive our wants away.
 
Hymn 3 • What fair one is this, from the wilderness trav’ling
HYMN 3. P. M.
 
1 What fair one is this, from the wilderness  trav’ling,
Looking for Christ, the belov’d of her heart?
O, this is the church, the fair bride of the  Savior,
Which with every idol is willing to part.
While men in contention, are constantly  howling. [p. 7]
