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!

For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods
upon the dry ground: I will pour my Spirit upon thy seed,
and my blessing upon thine offspring: And they shall spring
up as among the grass, as willows by the water courses.
The Lord Jesus said in John 4:13-14
Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this
water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I
shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him
shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
The Lord Jesus said in John 7:38:
He that believeth on me, as the Scripture hath said,
out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that
hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine
and milk without money and without price.
And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth
say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will,
let him take the water of life freely.
