Hymn, ‘As Longs the Hart’

As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so pantheth my soul after thee, O God.

(Psalm 42:1)

This is a new one, as hymns go, published in 1975. But the lyrics are based on Psalm 42 and the traditional British folk melody is as old as the hills: and it’s a very beautiful hymn.

Sung by Maddy Prior, music by The Carnival Band.
