Worship leaders are welcome to use this hymn in services, but please flatter me by letting me know that you are using it. Email me! I wrote the tune "Getty" for this hymn.

    O my restless heart,
    Seek and you shall find
Water from a flowing stream.
    Put your burden down;
    Take this simple cup;
Have you any greater need?

    O my heavy heart,
    Seek and you shall find
Comfort like a gentle hand.
    'Though the shadows fall,
    Walk on unafraid:
God is your enduring friend.

    O my joyful heart,
    Seek and you shall find
Words to match your melody.
    Praise the source of life;
    Praise the wondrous power;
Praise the living mystery.
