We thirst for even a sprinkling of peace,
as we reach the boiling point.

I THIRST

For this I’ve learned – we’re not immune
To dampened dreams beneath the moon
Where love lies fallow, barren, spent;
Where thirsting hearts are spurned and rent.

My Jesus, quench my burning need
And to your living water, lead
Where charred remains of love are nursed;
Where hearts will thrive and never thirst.

John 4:14 “… but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst.”
