“If any man thirst, let him come unto me and drink.”
(Author Unknown) 8.8.6.
Let him who thirsts for heavenly joys,
Come unto me, the Saviour cries,
And drink at my spring-head;
Leave all your boasting self behind,
For from the Saviour you shall find
A glorious life indeed.
I come, O Lord, and thirst for thee;
Some living water give to me,
Or I shall faint and die;
All other means my heart has tried,
All other streams are vain beside
What flows from Calvary.
I long to taste the purple flood,
And feel the virtue of thy blood,
And gaze and tarry here;
So shall I sweetly sing and pray,
And serve thee kindly every day,
Without a guilty fear.
