We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

I thirst, O, grant the waters pure

I thirst, O, grant the waters pure

Representative Text

I thirst!—O, grant the waters pure
Which they who drink shall thirst no more;
O give me of that living stream,
Which ever flows, with heavenly gleam,
Forth from the presence of our God,
Through fields by holy angels trod!

I thirst!—O bounteous Source of Truth,
Give coolness to my fevered youth;
Make the sick heart more strong and wise;
Take spectral visions from mine eyes;
O, let me quench my thirst in Thee,
And pure, and strong, and holy be!

I thirst!—O God, great Source of Love!
Infinite Life streams from above.
O, give one drop, and let me live!
The barren world has naught to give;
No solace have its streams for me;
I thirst alone for heaven and Thee.
