I am in need of nothing but the truth.
1. I sought for many things, and found despair. ²Now do I seek but one, for in that one is all I need, and only what I need. ³All that I sought before I needed not, and did not even want. ⁴My only need I did not recognize. ⁵But now I see that I need only truth. ⁶In that all needs are satisfied, all cravings end, all hopes are finally fulfilled and dreams are gone. ⁷Now have I everything that I could need. ⁸Now have I everything that I could want. ⁹And now at last I find myself at peace.
2. And for that peace, our Father, we give thanks. ²What we denied ourselves You have restored, and only that is what we really want.
