When I had thought life’s thirsts too great for quenching,
the yearnings of a soul, too strong to still,
I saw the Living Waters flowing freely;
And drinking deeply, knew my being’s fill.
Before the Throne of God I found fulfillment!
For in that flow of Heaven’s joy divine,
I knew the rich infilling of the Spirit,
and claimed that Holy effluence as mine.
Within my soul, now springs a stream eternal,
which stems from God the Son, Who dwells above;
My thirst, assuaged forever at that fountain,
Has found the potion sweet of Jesus’ love! en
