All Who Thirst for Living Water

Music by Gordon Light
Words by Barbara Liotscos

Lyrics as Poetry

All who thirst for living water,
all who hunger for good bread,
There’s a table in the desert,
come and share the feast that’s spread.
Celebrating earth’s abundance,
gathering hope for days to come,
we with those who’ve gone before us
give you thanks, O Holy One.

Everlasting is the covenant
which the Holy One designs,
Steadfast love a gushing river,
seeds with grace the healing vines;
Seeking life in all its fullness
for all creatures, none denied,
set our hearts to meet each other,
bridging all that sin divides.

Many are the ways you’ve chosen
to reveal the path of life,
wisdom’s truth for all who seek you,
cross our compass, faith our guide;
you the strength in all our wandering,
spring that wells up deep within,
friend who bears both pain and glory,
in your light new life begins.
