As A Child

May I be as a child,
With a heart that burns
In pursuit of Thine
Own heart at every turn.
May I be as a child,
Whose tempered will is trained
By Thine own desire,
My happiest constraint.
And as Thine own dear child,
Who has supped upon the bread
At Thy table, satisfied,
Though may I hunger yet.
As Thine own dear child,
Dear, as by Thine own deed,
Impress on me love simplified,
Is simply love complete.
So may I be as a child
Who, found by Thee, seeks Thee more,
Not meaning gain or good delight,
But meaning solely Thee, O Lord.
