Translation by Matthew Parker, Archbishop (1504 - 1575)

Even like the hunted hind
Language: English  after the Latin 
Even like the hunted hind
The waterbrooks desire,
E'en thus my soul, that fainting is,
To thee would fain aspire.
My soul did thirst to God,
to God of Life and Grace.
It said e'en thus: when shall I come
To see God's lively face?
