For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants.
Ho! every one that is thirsty in spirit,
Ho! every one that is weary and sad;
Come to the fountain, there’s fullness in Jesus,
All that you’re longing for: come and be glad!
“I will pour water on him that is thirsty,
I will pour floods upon the dry ground;
Open your hearts for the gifts I am bringing;
While ye are seeking Me, I will be found.”
Child of the world, are you tired of your bondage?
Weary of earth joys, so false, so untrue?
Thirsting for God and His fullness of blessing?
List to the promise, a message for you!
Child of the kingdom, be filled with the Spirit!
Nothing but “fullness” thy longing can meet
’Tis the enduement for life and for service;
Thine is the promise, so certain, so sweet.
If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me. And let him drink. . . As Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him. John 7:38
