Dear Friend of Hymnary,

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

430. I Hunger and I Thirst

1 I hunger and I thirst;
Jesus, my manna be:
ye living waters, burst
out of the rock for me.

2 Thou bruised and broken Bread,
my life-long needs supply;
as living souls are fed,
O feed me, or I die!

3 Thou true life-giving Vine,
let me thy sweetness prove;
renew my life with thine,
refresh my soul with love.

4 Rough paths my feet have trod,
since first their course began;
feed me, thou Bread of God;
help me, thou Son of Man.

5 For still the desert lies
my thirsting soul before;
O living waters, rise
within me evermore.
